There's truly something for everyone here in the Milwaukee area, and every suburb has its unique flair. Even better, you get access to so much excitement with all the benefits of suburban living. So, if you're looking for a place that feels just right, here are the best Milwaukee suburb neighborhoods for renters.


Just west of Milwaukee, beautiful Brookfield always has something fun to do, featuring a veritable menu of shopping, restaurants, parks, and entertainment in town. Sports fans will love stopping by nearby Miller Park to take in a Brewers game, and art lovers will certainly enjoy attending concerts and shows at the Sharon Lynne Wilson Center for the Arts. The Brookfield community is always abuzz, and you'll find neighbors waiting to welcome you with open arms.

Oak Creek

Nestled on the southwestern shore of Lake Michigan, this suburb south of Milwaukee has a wonderful community feel while still offering the conveniences of a fully-fledged city. At the heart of Oak Creek lies Drexel Town Square, a hub for shopping, dining, and coming together. It even features a farmers' market, a splash pad, an ice rink, and an outdoor amphitheater! Meanwhile, quite a few companies are headquartered in Oak Creek and residents have access to Milwaukee public transit, making your commute a breeze.

New Berlin

If you love spending time outdoors, New Berlin might just be the Milwaukee suburb for you. It features 26 parks covering 855 acres, as well as the much-adored New Berlin Hills Golf Course. New Berlin harbors a bit of a country vibe that its residents adore, while still offering up tons of great dining and other amenities. Pro-tip: If you want to sound like a true local, make sure to pronounce "Berlin" with stress on the first syllable—not like the German city.
