Gay Realtor Milwaukee reports there is a lot to say about all of the great happenings around the city for gay visitors and gay residents. Milwaukee’s roots brewed deep in the working class tradition of the industrial revolution, and of course, beer bottlers. Yet the city has evolved and expanded to embrace changing times and our LGBT community as a whole. There is the LGBT Community Center, a feature many large cities do not even offer to residents. In addition, there is the draw of a handful of neighborhoods that come to mind, that are popular and welcoming to the LGBT community. They include the East Side, Third Ward, Downtown, Walker’s Point, Bayview, Riverwest, and Brewers Hill.
Gay bars abound on 1st and 2nd Streets, which traverse the Walker’s Point neighborhood. Walker’s Point was founded as a fur trading post in 1835, by George H. Walker. It lies just south of the Third Ward, and is opening up to more and more condominium and retail development according to Gay Realtor Milwaukee. Mostly industrial, it does have pockets of residential space. Walker’s Point is sometimes referred to by real estate agents as Fifth Ward, in an effort to siphon some of the prestige of the Third Ward, which sits across from Walker’s Point on the other side of the Milwaukee River.
The Third Ward, or Historic Third Ward, is gay-friendly, and an upscale neighborhood in Milwaukee. Antique stores, boutiques, and art galleries pepper the neighborhood ~ it is the quintessential center to the gay and lesbian community reports our Gay Realtor Milwaukee. Gain easy access to Summerfest festivities at the Meir Festival Grounds, an evening out at one of the outdoor River Walk restaurants, and enjoy access to transportation, including Amtrak, Greyhound, and Badger Bus.
If more variety in housing and pricing is desired, check out the East Side, which is any area to the east of the Milwaukee River. It features two parks designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, the father of Landscape Architecture, and the famed designer of Central Park in Manhattan. Gay Realtor Milwaukee says Lake Park and Riverside Park are two slices of heaven for all Milwaukee residents to enjoy. Retail and commerce are intermingled with housing. The duplexes closer to the river are generally more budget friendly than the lofts, and condominium projects. Milwaukee bus routes 30 and Green Line Express run North-South and are major lines for the neighborhood. The rule is that there is a Milwaukee neighborhood for every taste and every budget.
