Fun way to spend part of a day! The only downside is that there are so many great places to eat that you really have to pace yourself.

Hi! Thanks so much for the kind words! You're right - the neighborhood has so many dining options it can be hard to choose. The best part is you can come back for more! See you then!

The Third Ward is a fun place to walk around, shop, eat and people watch. It is clean and lots of metered parking. If you are in Milwaukee you must go here for a few hours.

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.
