Lake Michigan, old world charm and craft beer
Milwaukee is on the western shores of Lake Michigan, the fifth largest lake in the world, where Summerfest, the world’s largest music festival, and many ethnic festivals take place throughout the summer. Milwaukee is a diverse community that has been an ethnic melting pot since its founding. There is truly something for everyone in Milwaukee; you can experience old world charm, diverse cultures and historic neighborhoods—and it’s a great place to raise a family.
Ranked among the Midwest’s top tech cities, the Milwaukee region boasts a rich history of innovation and is internationally recognized for its precision manufacturing heritage and beer brewing legacy. “Brew City” really is a big, small town. Milwaukee is big enough to offer professional sports and world-class performing arts yet small enough to navigate with ease, reflected in the city having one of the shortest commute times for major U.S. metros. Milwaukeeans cheer on Bucks basketball, Brewers baseball, Packers football, Wave soccer and Admirals hockey, and flock to the city’s many culture centers, including the Milwaukee Public Museum, the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts, the Milwaukee County Zoo and the Milwaukee Art Museum, which features the first Santiago Calatrava-designed building in the United States.
Milwaukee is in an unprecedented period of growth, with a skyline that is quickly changing as billions of dollars are being invested in new office buildings, condos, apartments and a new basketball arena and entertainment district. A diverse and vibrant economy keeps Milwaukee on the move; the region is home to eight Fortune 500 headquarters and global industry leaders, including Northwestern Mutual, ManpowerGroup, Kohl’s, Harley-Davidson, Rockwell Automation and Fiserv.
