Milwaukee Apartments for Rent
As the largest city in the state of Wisconsin and the 28th most populous city in the United States, Milwaukee has long been known as a city that open its arms to people of all backgrounds. Its earliest inhabitants, the Native Americans, called Milwaukee “the Good Land,” and the city grew as waves of German and Polish immigrants arrived. Today, Milwaukee continues to be diverse–in terms of its residents, as well as its economy and its attractions. The German immigrants that inhabited Milwaukee made it a leading beer producer, a position the city continues to hold today. It is home to Miller Brewing Company, a major area employer with over 2,000 employees, and Milwaukee Brewery is the oldest still-functioning major brewery in the nation.
Renting your next apartment in Milwaukee will put you in the middle of a city of attractions. Situated on the southwestern shore of Lake Michigan, Milwaukee provides ample opportunity for residents to participate in water sports on the lake, as well as fishing and sailing. For more recreation, visit one of the parks in Milwaukee’s nationally recognized park system. The Milwaukee Art Museum is itself a piece of art, with 110 tons of steel making up the wing atop the museum, which was designed by Santiago Calatrava to resemble the wing of a bird. Other area attractions include the Milwaukee Public Museum, the Harley Davidson House, and Old World Wisconsin, the largest outdoor living history museum in the Midwest. Children will love the hands-on exhibits at Discovery World and Betty Brinn Children’s Museum, which was voted one of the top 10 museums for children by Parents magazine. With attractions as diverse as the people that make up this thriving city, renting a Milwaukee apartment means leaving boredom at the door.
