Walking at night in downtown Milwaukee?

by travelmad478

I'm staying in MKE for one night next week at the Pfister Hotel and have thought about heading to Zaffiro's (1724 N Farwell Ave.) for dinner. I'd like to walk there, which seems to be just over a mile according to Google Maps (for me, this is a nice distance for walking).

However, is it a safe walk for a solo female in the evening? Should I take a cab, at least on the way back?

Other tasty/casual dining options for a solo diner in the downtown area also appreciated!

On a more serious note, I've never been to Milwaukee and don't know a thing about safety there. Someone here will have a better response than mine! I hope you can walk.. I know the feeling.

My husband is from Milwaukee, so we've been back there a couple of time to visit family. His family would tell you not to walk. However, not a lot of people actually live downtown, so whoever is out should be out for the same reasons you are - dining, entertainment, etc. He is of the opinion that as long as you are not planning on a late night, you should be fine. I am of the opinion that taking a cab could be just as dangerous. I'd be much more concerned if you said you were going to walk to a convenience store on Brown Deer Road.

I don't know the Farwell neighborhood that well, but walking in that diretion from downtown, during the sunlight is fine. Not sure what time you'd be walking home. It's just a 20 minute walk, I think you'd be fine, I'd do it.

Best bet is to ask the people at the Pfister, they know it better than anyone.

John Hawk's Pub on the river is nice and not too expensive. There are some great Mexican restaurants (Rudy's, etc. (may go by another name now)) South of there on 5th Street, a little too far to walk. Karl Ratzsch and Maders are very popular German restaurants downtown but will cost more than $10 for a meal. If you are going to be there on a weekend night, see what festival is going on at the Summerfest grounds, ie GermanFest, Festa Italiana. That would be fun! and there would be good food and beverages.

To make a trip complete to Milwaukee, I highly recommend George Webb's. Casual, greasy diner all over Milwaukee. This is the restaurant that was giving away free burgers when the Brewers opened the season with 12 straight victories one year (sometime in the 80's). Great place to go after a night on the town.

I used to live in the neighborhood you are talking about. I lived at 1500 block of North Prospect. I walked home alone during the day all the time. However, I don't think I would recommend the walk for a solo woman at night. If you were with one other person, no problem, but alone, don't recommend it at night. You can catch a bus up Prospect Avenue, get off at the 1700 or 1800 block and walk one block West to get to Zaffiro's.

You're probably fine there if you're sober and alert and stick to a well-lit route. I'd say if there are other people out, and you're not getting a creepy feeling, it's probably no problem. I'd walk it no doubt, but I'm kind of a thug, lol.

I second the poster who said "ask at the hotel," though.

Travel Tips for Milwaukee

Visit downtown and just walk...

by irshangel

Visit downtown and just walk around. Look at the great buildings. Enjoy the many types of food and the city's many events. Watching the Milwaukee Ballet Company's performance at Busch Theater of the Nutcracker.

Venice in Wisconsin?

by yooperprof

Milwaukee as a kind of middle-western Venice? Okay, that may be stretching it a bit. But it's certainly good to see Milwaukee finally starting to take advantage of its fine riverfronts downtown. I like the bridges, boats, and birds.

Bishop's House - Episcopal Diocese Offices (1902)

by yooperprof

The Bishop's House - at 804 E. Juneau in the Yankee Hill neighborhood - is part of the complex of buildings belonging to the Episcopal Diocese of Milwaukee. (Several church agencies are now located here.) However, originally (1902-03), the house was constructed as a residence, which explains a certain difference in style and scale from the nearby religious structures. Local architects Charles Kirchoff and Thomas Rose used a Jacobean Revival style which manages to appear complementary to the Gothic Revival of the Cathedral and Guild Hall next door.

Certainly the use of lovely "cream city" brick contributes a great deal to the successful blending of styles!

The Bishop's House is on the National Register of Historic Places.

Polar Bears

by blaird

Okay, there aren't any real Polar Bears around Lake Michigan, but if you are in Milwaukee on New Years Day go to the lakeshore to see human polar bears. On New Years Day, it is a Milwaukee tradition for a few crazy souls to swim in Lake Michigan (I am in the back of the photo above, with my hand on the snow bank). This all takes place at noon on New Year's Day; The polar bears hop into Lake Michigan, but people cook out for hours beforehand on the snow covered shoreline waiting for the action.

Remember, it is coooooold in Milwaukee on New Year's, so dress warm. A little nutty, but quite an experience.

Cold water, cold air, little about shrinkage.

Milwaukee Brewers baseball

by sambarnett

"The House That Bud Built" opened to much fanfare in 2001 and then reality sunk in. The retractable roof is flawed and can only be opened or closed when the facility is empty. Nothing like watching a game with a closed roof when it's sunny and warm outside. Oh, and the Brewers stink! Think I'm being harsh? That's nothing compared to what Milwaukee residents and Brewers fans are saying...

   Miller Park does feature excellent sightlines, is well lit and the prices are reasonable. Parking is plentiful and the tradition of tailgating is strong. Despite its many flaws, I have a good time visiting here. The Sausage Race rules!!
