Why It’s Cool: Stretching three miles along the Milwaukee River, this wooden-plank-and-concrete bike-and-walkway features 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.
