You can shop, grab some chocolate or eat at a number of places, or cocktails. Very close to the summerfest grounds in the summer for all the festivals.Or try out the new Hop, it's free right now.

Love all the shops, restaurants and quaint places in the 3rd Ward. Parking is more of an issue in the winter, but available parking is blocks away, and not an issue in the nicer months.

Hi Julie! Thank you so much for visiting. There are definitely snowdrifts in some street parking stalls, but the two parking structures are open and have space. See you again soon.

A trip to the Third Ward is like a trip to the museum! Walking through the streets with the sounds and smells wafting out of the local bars is so much fun! Come for the history, stay for the entertainment

It wasn't till a more recent trip to Milwaukee that I explored the third ward. It a part of the city know for its shops, restrants, and art. It gives Milwaukee that larger city edge, while keeping it local. I find the area very attractive...More

Fun area with lots of good restaurants and shopping. The Market Place houses even more under one roof. Stop by St Paul's Fish Market there for the best salmon and lobster tail!

Hi Cyndi! Thanks for visiting the Milwaukee Public Market. Hope you were able to spend some time exploring the rest of the neighborhood, too!

Lots of energy. It is an area south of downtown Milwaukee where numerous warehouses have been renovated. A nice world market and many great resturants.

The Public Market is really cool -- lots of local foods and drinks. There is also a great bar called Benelux there. The shopping was just ok -- I was hoping for a lot more. Worth a visit, though!

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.
