Milwaukee County Apartments for Rent(hide county information)
Long before television introduced us to Happy Days and Laverne and Shirley, Americans learned about “the beer that made Milwaukee famous.” When the German immigrants began to arrive on the southwestern shore of Lake Michigan in the 1840s, they brought with them their knowledge of and passion for the art of brewing beer. For the next 100 years, this heritage made Milwaukee the world’s leading beer producer.
It also made Milwaukee the largest city in Wisconsin. Although beer is no longer the city’s major industry one major brewer, Miller, remains in the city and employs more than 2,200 workers. Miller is the second-largest beer maker in the nation.
The wave of Polish immigrants who followed the Germans built many of the churches and steeples that create the city’s skyline. The historic Third Ward, once a hearty Italian community, is known today for its condos, restaurants and nightlife, housed in original architecture. Milwaukee celebrates this constant introduction and development of new communities in its annual summer festivals.
Nicknamed the “City of Festivals,” the city celebrates its history and diversity with non-stop festivities during the summer months. Rent a Milwaukee apartment today and enjoy all this dynamic city has to offer.
