Was pleasant to be able to walk around area to stop for lunch and then go to Skylight. Parking can be tricky but Sunday is usually a good day. With patience can find good parking.

Hi Kris! Thanks for exploring the Ward! Good parking is always available in two parking structures located at 212 N Milwaukee Street and 225 E Chicago Street; and both are located just two blocks from the Skylight. Hope you enjoyed the show!

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
