WELCOME TO MILWAUKEE.
Milwaukee is comprised of several unique and vibrant neighborhoods. Discover more about what each neighborhood what each has to offer during your stay.
For a break from the asphalt, walk down to the Milwaukee River or cruise over to the east side’s Urban Ecology Center. And if it’s music you seek, you’ll find all kinds in Riverwest. Circle A, Mad Planet, High Dive, the Jazz Gallery, and Linneman’s are just the beginning. For the readers and poets- Woodland Pattern for nearly forty years, has presented internationally celebrated artists alongside performances by local and regional writers, artists, and musicians.
Located directly to the west of the hostel, Harambee is a large residential neighborhood with some real gems along the main streets.
Fischberger's Variety is gift shop manifesting as an old-time variety store that “inspires smiles.” With its drool-worthy hot bar and wide selection of beverages, Pueblo Foods is far more than a corner store. The nearest post office as well as the MLK branch of our public library are located along Martin Luther King Drive, and Rise & Grind, about a mile south on MLK, offers a great breakfast.
The Third Ward is Milwaukee’s historic warehouse district. Over the last few decades, it has become a hotspot for local shops, art and food. Don’t miss the many dining and shopping options at the Milwaukee Public Market, and if you’re here during the warmer months, be sure to check out what’s happening at Henry W. Maier Festival Park, located nearby along the lakefront.
