The First-Class Third Ward

Things to Do in Milwaukee

Hang at our Historic Third Ward Milwaukee hotel

Known for its artistic influence, the Historic Third Ward houses more than 20 galleries and art studios, the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design, and one very important art-rich hotel: Kimpton Journeyman Hotel, of course! The turn-of-the-century buildings of the neighborhood are now filled with boutiques, brewers, and eateries galore. This is also where you’ll find Henry Maier Festival Park, the location of world-renowned Summerfest and a whole slew of cultural festivals and events, and the Milwaukee Public Market, recognized as one of the best in the country by Frommer’s thanks to its specialty food purveyors. In short, this little neighborhood is big on historical significance and activities.

Downtown

Milwaukee County Zoo

It’s a jungle out there — and that’s the fun of it! Visit the Milwaukee County Zoo, an impressive spot to see lions, tigers, and bears (oh my), plus peacocks, kangaroos, elephants, and much more.
