On this signature guided walking tour, we stroll through the fashionable East Side neighborhood of Brady Street – the ethnic enclave that was settled by Italian and Polish immigrants. We enjoy delicious tastings along the way at authentic Italian eateries, as well as at several newer establishments that revitalize this community.
Did you know that the famous book, Psycho, was penned on Brady Street? Or why do many Milwaukee homes are referred to as a “Polish Flat?” These are just two fun tidbids you’ll learn more about during the tour. Food items enjoyed will include pizza, cannoli, tinga tacos, salami, prosciutto, olives, cottage pie and a Milwaukee brewed beer.
Tour Length – Slightly more than one mile with plenty of walking breaks and opportunities to sit down along the way. We spend approximately 20 minutes at each restaurant.
