Milwaukee WI Cityscape

Overview of Milwaukee

Tucked along the beautiful shoreline of Lake Michigan, Milwaukee is small for a major city, but it packs a big punch. No matter where you are in Milwaukee, you'll be within arm's reach of top-notch cultural, recreational and art amenities. This sports city is the home of the NBA Bucks and MLB Brewers – two of Wisconsin's most beloved sports teams. During the summer, Milwaukee WI hosts the world's largest music festival, Summerfest, which takes place along the lakefront. Coined as Brew City, Milwaukee has plenty of locally crafted beers and unique pubs, many that pay homage to German culture.

Milwaukee Apartments & Cost of Living

Though apartments in Milwaukee tend to be slightly more expensive than the national average, the low cost of groceries and transportation makes the overall cost of living on par with the average. If you're looking for Milwaukee apartments with a bit of character, you're in luck! More than 30 percent of the homes in Milwaukee were built prior to 1940, and many more were built between 1940 and 1980. There is not a large density of newer constructions in Milwaukee, so renters may want to consider finding a remodeled building if they are looking for a chic, cosmopolitan rental.

Neighborhoods in Milwaukee

Milwaukee apartments are very diverse depending on what you're looking for. Students looking for apartments should consider looking into Avenues West and University Hill neighborhoods, which are close to the Marquette campus on the west side of the city. Renters looking for an easy commute downtown to work may enjoy the recently gentrified Bay View neighborhood, which is home to many young professionals and singles. East Side is another hub for recent college grads and hip young professionals because of the proximity to some of Milwaukee's hottest nightlife. The Historic Third Ward, Wauwatosa and Whitefish Bay are other top neighborhoods in Milwaukee. All of these neighborhoods are very community-centric and are great for young artists as well as families.

Milwaukee Work & Study

University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and Marquette University are two of the largest institutes in the area, but the city is also home to smaller schools such as Milwaukee Area Technical College, Milwaukee School of Engineering and Wisconsin Lutheran College. Milwaukee apartments are ideal for students attending schools in the area.

People making the move to Milwaukee will find a prosperous business economy, as some of the top employers are in high-tech, engineering and financial industries. AT&T Wisconsin, Aurora Health Care, BMO Harris, Briggs & Stratton Corp., Cooper Power Systems and Froedtert are among the largest job providers.
