Living in Milwaukee
If you’re thinking about moving to Milwaukee, cheers! Known as the Brew City for its plentiful breweries, Wisconsin’s largest city offers much more than just great beer. On the western shore of Lake Michigan, Milwaukeeans enjoy warm, humid summers and snowy winters. To put it simply: there is no shortage of fun stuff to do, no matter the season!
Spend the warm Milwaukee summers boating on Lake Michigan, hiking in the over 140 parks, or enjoying the restaurants and attractions along the two-mile long RiverWalk. Summerfest, Milwaukee’s annual lakefront music festival, lasts for 11 days and attracts thousands of music lovers to the city. During the cold, snowy winters, stay warm indoors admiring exhibits at the Milwaukee Art Museum, laughing at ComedySportz, or cheering on the Milwaukee Bucks at the BMO Harris Bradley Center – that is, until the state-of-the-art Wisconsin Entertainment and Sports Center opens in 2018.
And if you’re interested in facts and figures… in 2013, Forbes listed Milwaukee as one of the nation’s top 15 “emerging downtowns,” and Walkscore named it the 15th most walkable large city in the country. So, what are you waiting for?
