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.

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.
