Five Reasons to Look Forward to Summer in Milwaukee
1. Jazz in the Park, it’s back June 4th and despite the drama, will be just like it has been in years past. River Rhythms starts across the river on June 10th, and Chill on the Hill kicks off June 2nd.
2. Bike racks on buses, they’re coming.
3. The Milwaukee RiverWalk, take a stroll along the RiverWalk where the built environment meets the natural environment. It’s not just for walking though, eat to your hearts content at Rock Bottom Brewery, the Milwaukee Ale House, or the Water Buffalo (by no means a complete list of RiverWalk eateries). Lakefront Brewery has a nice RiverWalk segment and they serve beer, check that out.
5. The Bastille Days run. An athletic urbanist’s dream, what other event lets you run through the streets of downtown Milwaukee with only the fear of getting hit by a stroller? Milwaukee needs more runs in the city. The lakefront is great, but nothing compares to running through the city streets with 10,000 other people. North Avenue? Brady Street? Westown? All would be fun.
