While Milwaukee is often called a “City of Neighborhoods,” learning about communities outside of your own can be a challenge — it’s not always obvious where to start. Join Milwaukee enthusiast Adam Carr for an in-depth bus tour and exploration of culture/history/depth/texture in Milwaukee neighborhoods.

This is part two of two MKE101 tours in 2017, designed to explore some of the most fundamental ideas of our city. The tour’s route and itinerary will be inspired by Explore MKE: Your Neighborhood, Our City, a book recently written by Carr and published by SHARP Literacy. Our focus during the first leg was the South Side, with this leg focusing on the North Side.

While the tour will be accessible to beginners, more tenured Milwaukeeans may also appreciate the tour — basic knowledge about Milwaukee isn’t always common knowledge.

The tour will include a handful of stops, as well as food/snacks along the route. Be prepared to get off the bus and explore.

Itinerary (Route subject to change!):
Meet at: Haymarket Associated Bank
– Glorious Malone’s Fine Sausages
– All People’s Church
– Growing Power Cafe
– Alice’s Garden
– Juice Kitchen
Return to: Haymarket Associated Bank
