NOW: Taking a tour of Milwaukee’s streetcar is just a hop, skip, and a jump away

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58)--It's a perfect activity to add to your summer "things to do list" in Milwaukee.

Every Tuesday and Thursday afternoon, Historic Milwaukee takes people on a tour of Milwaukee's streetcar.

Hard to believe the Hop has been a permanent fixture at and around the downtown landscape for almost three years now, and it's still expanding.

If you ride the two plus mile of railway tracks, you'll discover this transit system is more than just a way to get around the area. 

It's also a means of seeing how revitalization has evolved and impacted our lives in ways you might not have known.

The Hop tour lasts an hour and a half, starting at 1 p.m. on Tuesday and 2 p.m. on Thursday. 

The price ranges between ten and fifteen dollars. 

You're encouraged to sign up to take a tour.  Just click here to do so.
