Take your furry friend for a walk along the Milwaukee River on the RiverWalk! Located downtown, the 3.1-mile path is perfect for you and your pet to roam.


There’s no reason man’s best friend can’t be man’s best travel companion when you’re traveling to a pet-friendly city like Milwaukee! From pet-friendly hotels (including one that even has its own canine concierge!) to bars where your dog can vibe while you imbibe, there’s plenty of fun for you and your furry friend in Milpawkee. 

Black Husky Brewing  

Black Husky Brewing opened in 2010, inspired by the spirit of owners Tim and Toni Eichinger’s beloved husky Howler and the 23 dogs that have spent their lives with the couple. Walk on into the taproom with your furry friend or enjoy the brewery’s outdoor patio as you sample from a wide selection of 12 beers on tap, flights for the indecisive and to-go options for later. Be sure to check the calendar of events for everything from trivia nights to live music performances and outdoor gatherings.
