Renting a Cheap Apartment in Milwaukee

If you're trying to find an apartment for rent in Milwuakee, then you're in the right place. Milwaukee is Wisconsin’s largest city, home to a large portion of the Midwestern beer industry and a place where you’ll find lots of friendly locals. The name is of Native American origin, meaning “gathering place by the river”, and the city is on the banks of the Milwaukee River. Settled by early German and Polish immigrants, Milwaukee retains some of those influences on its culture today. The city’s economy has historically been driven by beer production and manufacturing. Manufacturing has slowed down some in recent years, and the growth of large companies headquartered here, tourism and health care have filled some of the gaps. The city’s baseball team, the Brewers, is a source of local pride.
