Tips For Exploring the Milwaukee RiverWalk (With Kids!)


The Milwaukee Riverwalk is a great way to explore the city on foot.

The Downtown Riverwalk leads you past our city's main Theater District, including the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts (home of First Stage Children's Theater, Milwaukee Ballet, and the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra), Milwaukee Repertory Theater, and the Pabst & Riverside Theatres.

Pro Tip: Explore the Riverwalk on a Wednesday evening in the Summer, and end with a picnic and a free live music concert at River Rhythms in Pere Marquette Park.
