Welcome to Milwaukee

 

Historical architecture stands as a tribute to Milwaukee's past, while the metro area vibrates from the construction of a changing skyline and with the energy of its near 600,000 residents. Cranes, which have become common fixtures on the skyline, are a picture of Milwaukee's modernization. Millennials are drawn to Milwaukee's blue-collar roots, relatively low cost of living and exciting, new development.

It's no surprise the residents are passionate about having fun. Milwaukee has a bustling nightlife, award-winning restaurants, lakefront museums and a thriving music and arts scene. History and tradition are embraced, celebrated with German fare, craft beer, Friday fish fries and an array of cultural events. Milwaukee hosts dozens of festivals each year. Summerfest, the city's biggest, spans 11 days and welcomes hundreds of bands.
