For the past couple years, I've been walking the Milwaukee area with readers via a series of Facebook lives. They're unrehearsed, unplanned beyond picking a place to start, and so, they're casual and hopefully informative and interesting and maybe even fun.

Here is an ongoing collection of the walks – some of which explore indoor places, too – which you can watch any time via the embedded links below, which could come in especially handy.

Keep checking back because I'll add more as I do them.
