Milwaukee is considered one of the most walkable and safe downtowns in the country. With dozens of attractions, museums, restaurants, and the lakefront all located within 1.5 miles of the Wisconsin Center, located in the heart of downtown Milwaukee. In addition to safe and clean streets maintained by Milwaukee’s Downtown Ambassadors, you’ll find 3 miles of RiverWalk, an ADA accessible path that runs parallel to the Milwaukee River. Or, if you need even more water, you can enjoy miles of car-free lakeshore path that includes scenic vistas and local hot spots like Discovery World, the Milwaukee Art Museum, Veterans Park, and Bradford Beach, named a top beach in the country by USA Today.
Milwaukee’s bike share program, Bublr Bikes, has over 70 stations across Milwaukee and Wauwatosa, connecting the entire city. For just a small fee, you can pedal your way to your next destination or just let the over 130 miles of bike trails take you off the beaten path.
New in 2018 is The Hop, Milwaukee's street car, which covers most of Milwaukee’s East Town and Historic Third Ward areas, with additional expansions opening in 2019.
The Milwaukee County Transit System is the state's largest transit system, offering 60 routes complete with ADA accessibility and bike-friendly capabilities. The system recently launched a first-in-class app, allowing riders to purchase tickets directly from their phone as well as take advantage of route information, real-time bus tracking, and more.
