Fairly flat route along the windy shores of Lake Michigan:
* Our mileage starts/finishes at Jefferson & Mason Streets (just behind the Pfister hotel)
* Run East to Memorial Dr where you will find the path
* Turn L and follow the path North
Recommended primarily as a swim option, this facility sports a highly coveted regulation lap pool in downtown Milwaukee. Housed inside the easy to miss Straz Tower, a dorm-like building on the campus' eastern edge, the Rec Plex is a 10-15 minute walk from the Courtyard and other hotels.
Located 35 miles west of downtown Milwaukee on the 2nd floor of the Knights of Pythias building, Soleil Lune hosts various levels of vinyasa flow yoga and belly dancing classes.
Another full-service health club option (sans pool) in downtown Milwaukee.
The studio is located in the historic 3rd Ward of Milwaukee, at the corner of Buffalo and N. Water Street. Metered parking is available around the studio for about $2 (in quarters, of course) for 2 hours.
With your picture I.D., hotel room key, and $5, your admission to Milwaukee's best facility will be hassle free. You will need your hotel key as local hotel guests are the only non-members allowed inside this club (unless accompanied by a member).
