Top Reasons to Live in Milwaukee WI

  • Milwaukee, the largest city in Wisconsin, is known for several things: its brewing traditions, being home to Summerfest, the largest musical festival in the world, and its ethnic diversity and lovely lakefront location. It is also well known in the modern American and global consciousness as being the home to two extremely well known TV shows: "Laverne & Shirley" and, to an even greater extent, "Happy Days." Of course, the city also offers a whole lot more than that, with its vibrant art scene and great food.

  • Housing StatisticsThe central hub of the city itself, not counting the greater metropolitan area, is home to about 600,000 people, with a median age of just over 30 years of old, 14 years junior to the state average. Estimated household income rates are fairly low for the US at a little over $33,000, with per capita income rates standing at about $18,000. In line with these low income stats, housing stats for average home sales prices are also fairly low at roughly $150,000, with median rates of only $107,000, making it a fantastic place to buy or rent to own homes. These stats are based off local trends, with an average of about 1,000 homes being old monthly since 2010.
  • Arts and CultureMilwaukee is often know as the City of Festivals, with many musical festivals and cultural and ethnic events taking place at Maier Festival Park throughout the year. Jazz in the Park, a popular cultural event in the city, takes place each week, while others, such as Summerfest, come about once a year. The city also houses a range of museums for both art, science, natural history, and social/cultural history. Most visually arresting of all of the city's attractions is probably the Milwaukee Art Museum, while the Grohman Museum is known for having the most comprehensive art collection in the world that looks at the evolution and changing nature of man-made works. If it's natural history you're keen on, the Milwaukee Public Museum is an absolute must, especially if you're interested in dinosaurs, where you'll have the opportunity to see the world's largest dinosaur skull on display. Well worth the trip for budding paleontologists! Other great museums include Discovery World, Mitchell Park Horticultural Conservatory, Pabst Mansion, and the America's Black Holocaust Museum. And that's to speak nothing of the city's diverse dining options, public art monuments, and performing arts arena, of which there are many!
  • Tourist AttractionsOk, so how about some of the major attractions in the city? Well, we've covered some cultural points of interest, so what else is there? Well, as with many major cities, the local zoo is a good spot for some animal spotting, with a massive range of animals dotted around a sprawling facility. If you're a fan of getting out and about on foot, the River Walk is also a must, taking you along the waterfront and past many of the city's other attractions as you go. You'll be able to head on to Lakeshore State Park or Henry Aaron State Trail, or simply stop off at one of the many cafes, restaurants, or bars along the way for a drink and a bite to eat. Lincoln Village is another place to explore by foot, with the St. Josaphan Basilica and Kosciuszko Park of particular note. Or, if you're in the mood for a bit of sport, why not head to Miller Park, home to the Milwaukee Brewers, to catch a game of baseball. This ballpark is truly state of the art, with a retractable roof and video scoreboard that really takes your experience to the next level.
  • Neighborhood GuideAs with any major city, Milwaukee is home to dozens of different neighborhoods within the city limits. Many of these have a high walk score, meaning that they're well placed to enjoy the local amenities, parks, and attractions the city has to offer. Finding homes for sale and rental properties within one of these neighborhoods will generally lead to a better quality of life, so it's helpful to know a little about them if you're looking for a property.
