Milwaukee RiverWalk, Milwaukee

4 of 11

Why It’s Cool: Stretching three miles along the Milwaukee River, this wooden-plank-and-concrete bike-and-walkway passes through Old World Third Street with its cobblestoned streets and 19th-century European-style
faux-half-timbered buildings. Look for such local haunts as the Wisconsin
Cheese Mart
, which stocks 175 state cheeses; its Cheese Bar sells beer-and-cheese
flights pairing Wisconsin blue Affinée, Gruyère, sharp cheddar, and Bellavitano
with local Sprecher Special Amber microbrew.

Don’t Miss: The bronze Fonz statue of the character
played by Henry Winkler on Happy Days, the television series set in Milwaukee, stands just south of Wells Street.
