Stroll around the Milwaukee River ( Milwaukee RiverWalk)

Want an extra you'll, accessible way to explore the city of Milwaukee on foot? The Milwaukee RiverWalk, a 3.7-mile Milwaukee RiverWalk winds through the heart of the city, tying together three distinct riverfront neighborhoods — the Historic Third Ward, Downtown, and Beerline B.

The RiverWalk offers some interesting sites to see along the way. The smell of the water is beautiful, and there are a few restaurants to rest and have a drink or snack if you would like. 

Home to an outdoor art gallery called River Sculpture, you can snap a picture with both permanent pieces and temporary installations. As you stroll along the RiverWalk, you'll enjoy making new discoveries, from small, whimsical sculptures such as Gertie, the world's most celebrated duck, to sizable and striking abstract works.

Take a picture with Bronze Fonz

Homage to Arthur Fonzarelli, aka "Fonzie," the tough guy king of cool from "Happy Days," the popular sitcom set in 1950s Milwaukee.

Standing 5-foot-6 in his leather jacket, the Bronze Fonz is seldom seen without at least one fan wrapping their arm around him or mimicking his thumbs-up pose. Make sure to get your pic!

 

Kayaking & Paddle board 

You can set off on an adventure by renting a kayak or stand-up paddle board from Clear Water Outdoor. Their pier is located right on the RiverWalk, just across from the Milwaukee Public Market.

The windows of the Chase Building are also beautifully decorated. 

For parents with children and strollers, there are several Lifts so you can avoid tIt is illegal to swim in the Milwaukee River, and it is not recommended to swim without the efforts, planning, and testing done for the Cream City Classic.
