Milwaukee RiverWalk

In the heart of downtown, the two-mile long RiverWalk winds along the Milwaukee River with access to some of the city's best restaurants, brewpubs, shops and waterfront nightlife.

Eye-catching public art gives the RiverWalk the feel of an outdoor gallery and colorful, user-friendly directional signs elaborate on the city's history. It's the site of many Milwaukee events, including River Rhythms, the Milwaukee River Challenge and more.
