Full description
Hear more about the Third Ward on this in-depth guided walking tour through the neighborhood. Previously the unfortunate victim to a devastating fire and some bloody history, the historic Third Ward is now one of the most beautiful and most frequently visited neighborhoods in Milwaukee. Once-empty factories and vacant lots now house delicious restaurants, enticing boutiques, and lavish condos. During this tour you will see key sites -like the official plaque recognizing the birthplace of pizza in Milwaukee. Hear more about the area's local history during a 90-minute tour with a local tour guide. The tour will end with a sweet treat from a local bakery.
