Feel like Milwaukee’s small? Maybe too small? Well then, come get lost with us on our city’s further south side and open up what you think is possible in our city.
A highlight of last year’s tour season was our MKE NW tour, which featured amazing stops throughout Milwaukee’s expansive northwest side. This summer, we’re doing that tour’s companion piece — a route/itinerary exploring Milwaukee, south of Oklahoma Ave and beyond.
Join Milwaukee storyteller Adam Carr for a tour that stretches the limits of his expertise and visits all new stops for this tour series. This one promises to include spaces and stories that are beautiful, evolving and/or open.
We will make multiple stops, including markets, delicious snacks and a little bit of walking, so be prepared for all three. Stops subject to change!
