If you and your kids have an interest in local history and a love of downtown, Historic Milwaukee has got you covered -- literally.

Milwaukee winters are cold, which is why a historic tour of downtown Milwaukee that utilizes the city's skywalks is the perfect wintertime activity!

Historic Milwaukee offers guided skywalk tours on Saturdays throughout the winter, and on Sunday, January 15 at 1 p.m., one of those tours will be especially geared toward families with kids ages 6-12 (who, by the way, are free). Some of the topics covered will be early topography, Native Americans and their habitats, fur traders, early villages and the bridge wars.

Check out the Historic Milwaukee website for more information and to register for the walk.
