Milwaukee, WI in the news

Living in Milwaukee, WI

Living in location

As Wisconsin's largest city, Milwaukee offers local renters plenty of rich history, culture and fun things to do. Specifically, the city is located on the shores of Lake Michigan and at the confluence of the Milwaukee, Menomonee and Kinnickinnic rivers. Sailing is a very popular activity for local renters, and the city also has a beautiful riverwalk downtown to take advantage of the city's natural geography. The city is arguably best known for its beer industry: Iconic breweries - like Miller, Pabst and Schlitz - all got their start in Milwaukee, and there are still many craft breweries in the city today. Milwaukee is also a melting pot of diverse cultures, as there has been a long tradition of immigrants renting in the area. These cultures also influence the city's exciting food scene, which features everything from European to African to Latin foods. Local renters also enjoy celebrating the city's diversity with exciting summer festivals. Additionally, Milwaukee renters have access to some of the most celebrated museums in the Midwest, including the Milwaukee Art Museum, Milwaukee Public Museum and Discover World.

Beyond the vibrant daily life, those renting in Milwaukee benefit from a strong sense of community and an array of amenities. The city's numerous parks and green spaces offer a respite from the urban environment, with activities ranging from biking to bird watching. In winter, the community comes together to enjoy seasonal sports like ice skating and hockey, demonstrating Milwaukee's year-round appeal.

Renting in Milwaukee, WI

Milwaukee is a highly walkable city with relatively dense neighborhoods. Here, neighborhoods located downtown and along the lakefront have many high-rise apartments and historic rental properties. Then, as you move away from the lakefront, you'll find more single-family homes, as well as "Polish flats," which are two-story buildings with one apartment on each floor. Notably, Milwaukee has relatively affordable rental prices, especially when compared to larger Midwest cities, like Chicago. Rental properties in Milwaukee feature a wide range of historic architecture styles, including unique Tudor, Victorian Gothic, Italianate and German Renaissance Revival styles. This gives each neighborhood its own unique character. Marquette University and the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee are also both located in the city, and there are many apartments nearby that cater to college students.

Otherwise, grocery options for Milwaukee renters include chains like Meijer and Whole Foods, as well as a variety of local grocers.

Transportation in Milwaukee, WI

Many Milwaukee renters opt to drive to get around the city because it's one of the fastest ways to get between neighborhoods and having a car can be particularly helpful in the cold winter months. So, when choosing an apartment, renters should look for options with underground parking to prevent weather damage and keep their vehicles safe. Alternatively, there are a variety of other transportation options available in Milwaukee, as well.
