Milwaukee is Wisconsin’s largest city, and one of the most cosmopolitan in the Midwest. Milwaukee avoided the fate of many post-industrial rust belt cities by investing in public works projects like the Riverwalk, new stadiums like Miller Mark, and high profile projects like the expansion of the Milwaukee Art Museum. Located on the shores of Lake Michigan, Milwaukee is a popular destination for land-locked Midwesterners yearning to sail on open water.
Known as the “Brew City”, Milwaukee was once the top beer-producing city in the world. Beer is still a vital part of the city’s identity today. Milwaukee is home to both big beer corporations and craft breweries. The MillerCoors Brewery, the Milwaukee Brewing Company, and Spercher Brewery all offer tastings and tours. There are also brew pubs throughout the city, like the Milwaukee Ale House, which produce their own beer.
Milwaukee is home to many festivals throughout the summer, including the Summerfest music festival, which holds the Guinness Book of World Records title as the “World’s Biggest Music Festival.” Other summer festivities include ethnic celebrations, the Firkin Craft Beer Festival, and the annual Great Circus Parade.
Milwaukee’s unique neighborhoods are a big part of the reason it continues to attract new residents. Juneau Town is near to the lake, and one of the city’s most desirable addresses. Riverwest is a bohemian part of town with Eastern European roots. The Lower East Side’s commercial thoroughfares buzz with young people. The residential Upper East Side is split between students and stately homes. Bay View is a neighborhood with blue collar roots, and many new Milwaukee transplants.
