We obviously love Milwaukee, and we are so excited whenever we hear someone new is coming to town. So, we are here to give you some insider's advice. If you are thinking of moving to Milwaukee’s charming suburbs, here is a look at what you need to know before you pack your bags.

They Call It Brew City for a Reason

That is right, the beer is flowing here in Brew City. No matter which neighborhood you live in, there is sure to be a top-notch brewery or bar nearbyBe sure to check out Lakefront Brewery, a local favorite. 

You'll Be Welcomed with Open Arms

If there is one thing that can be said for Milwaukeeans, it is that we are super friendly. Milwaukee is a city where you are sure to make new friends. Most people are always eager to sit down, have a beer, and get to know you.  

The Winters May Be Cold, But the Summers Are Amazing

Locals and transplants alike adore that Milwaukee has all four seasons. Yes, you will need to pack your winter coat, but once the summer months roll around, Milwaukee takes on a special magic. From heading to one of the many festivals to chilling on the lake, there is no shortage of summer fun. 

Fridays Are for Fish

That is right, you cannot call yourself a local until you have partaken in the Friday night fish fry. This long-standing Wisconsin culinary tradition can be found on tons of restaurant menus throughout Milwaukee. For some of the best, pull up a seat at The Social Haus in Menomonee Falls for a basket of fried fish and chips!  

Parks Are in High Supply

Sometimes all the wonderful nature in Milwaukee can get overlooked by outsiders. But once you move here, you will find that Milwaukee life features tons of wonderful hikes, parks, and lakefront views to enjoy.
