Take a tour of Milwaukee's Skywalks with Gary Kulas, a long-time tour guide for Historic Milwaukee.
Have you ever taken time to look at the buildings of downtown Milwaukee? The history and architecture is stunning, and it is easy to take it all for granted when you see it every day.
But if you pause -- and look -- you're almost granted to notice something in the urban landscape you haven't seen before.
If you need a little help, Historic Milwaukee hosts tours of the city year-round. During the winter, you can stay warm and see the city from a different perspective on its "Skywaukee" tour.
A 90-minute guided stroll through Downtown's modem sky walk allows you to see the upper stories of buildings that you'd miss from the street level. And perched high above the city, you can see get right up to the facades of buildings and enjoy panoramic views of the city. It's fun just to see how it all fits together.
Plus, guides share stories about Milwaukee's history and quirks.
