Stumbled upon Oro Oils, now we only order from here. Such a great variety. Favorite is the Tuscan Herb, I use this to marinate my grilled veggies, the jalapeño is fantastic. Manager is very friendly and everyone knows their oils.

Enjoyed our three evening walk through the Ward and along the river. Love the old buildings and glad to see revitalization that seems to be working. Lots of places to eat and more fitness clubs than one can count.

Nicely gentrified but architecturally preserved areas of 19th and turn of 20th century Milwaukee, serving as setting for numerous restaurants and stores of both general and eclectic type.

Well maintained old building to give feel of history of MKE bur much of it modernized to today's taste. Good place to visit for food and try out different restaurants.

Such a great walking experience. Beautiful buildings, trendy shops and a great public indoor market! Parking can be difficult. If you visit the public market and make a purchase you can have parking validated.

I would go to the art museum and eat there. Pretty lake views even if art isn't your thing. And there are a couple of places to eat there that have good quality food.
