The Third Ward is a must-see location in Milwaukee. It has various activities ranging from a painting bar to hot new restaurants, a theater to a nail salon. The space feels safe and well-maintained, and is a requirement of all MKE trips.

Unique gentrified warehouse district. Plenty of boutiques, bars/brewhouses, restaurants, Milwaukee Market, river tour in the summer. Near Milwaukee's Festival grounds, where every weekend in the summer, there is a 3 day long festival.

Third ward is near downtown Milwaukee, quaint shops, unique shopping and great restaurants. Watch the meter, the ticketing is ridiculous. If you want to mill from shop to shop with seeing artsy and upscale stores. Not cheap but wonderful. Check out the Milwaukee Market for all types of food and shopping.

Stayed in this area for a photo shoot. Really neat part of town with bars and restaurants within walking distance. Great character. Would definitely go back.

This is a must-do part of Milwaukee! The market is amazing, the restaurants are delicious, and the shopping is very good too! We spent an entire morning just at the market and walked away with lots of goodies. I will definitely be back!

Great shopping and dining, check out Kit and Ace, shoos, then cross the street for a boozy coffee. Definitely have brunch and mimosas!

Used to have an art glass and antique shop here in the 90's and the ward has grown and prospered in the years since. It's great to see it so vibrant, the neighborhood is hopping!
