Walking Tour

Around the Ward in 90 Minutes

At one time an 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…and an official plaque recognizing the birthplace of pizza in Milwaukee! To hear more about that great story and so many others, join us for an in-depth experience with one of our local tour guides on our Around the Ward in 90 Minutes tour!

NOTE: We will utilize audio headsets on our walking tours that are sanitized after each tour. With a 100 yard range, they work fabulously at amplifying the tour guide and allowing guests to practice social distancing as they wish.

Adult: $30.00
Adolescent (8-15): $10.00
Child (0-7): Free
Easy Social Distancing!
