Living and Working in Milwaukee
Welcome to Milwaukee
Although Brew City is stereo-typically known for its beer, cheese, brats and sports teams, people are often amazed by Milwaukee’s cultural diversity and unique attractions.
Not only is it home to a thriving music and arts scene, but Milwaukee’s rich history comes alive at any number of local museums or theatres, as well as along the city’s famously German, Old World Third Street. Add to that a downtown filled with beautifully preserved historic buildings and you’ll start to appreciate Milwaukee’s past as much as its present and future.
The extreme accessibility and family-friendly atmosphere make Milwaukee a top choice for families looking to put down roots. Its diverse neighborhoods appeal to families of all types, offering everything from waterfront condo-living to cozy, tree-lined neighborhoods ranked as some of the best in the state not only for academics, but also family-friendly amenities.
Milwaukee is truly America’s Third Coast with endless watersports —from sailing to surfing to boat cruising—available up and down the lake and riverfront. For land lovers, the city’s expansive green spaces offer another list of must-do’s. Take a shoreline bike ride, hit up a hiking or running path or enjoy a peaceful day at the park.
There’s something for everyone here. The world-class Milwaukee Art Museum, nearly 15,000 acres of parks and parkways, nationally ranked brewery tours, the trendy and revitalized Historic Third Ward, the architectural landmark of the Pabst Mansion and the award-winning Milwaukee RiverWalk are just a few of the chart toppers.
