Although I live in Milwaukee, I can recommend this to anyone who visits. From downtown north for at least 7 miles, just head to the lake Michigan shore and follow the paths and sidewalks north or south. Beautiful lakefront homes, and parks and beaches. In the summer months there is ample water available along most of the route. Best of all, if you stay on the east side, nearest the lake, virtually no traffic to contend with the whole length of the route.
