Don’t Overlook Surrounding Neighborhoods

When looking for a place to live in Milwaukee, consider an apartment in one of the surrounding neighborhoods. Places like Brookefield and Oak Creek feature scenic nature and an idyllic charm located just ten miles outside of the city. Enjoy the perks of city living from the comfort of a serene community from one of these outer boroughs.

Bring Your Passion for Beer

With a nickname like “Brew City,” it’s no secret that Milwaukee is home to some fantastic pours. The city’s first brewery, Milwaukee Brewery, opened in 1840 by Welsh settlers. With nearly two centuries of brewing experience, local brewmasters have perfected the art of making the perfect brew. When landing in Milwaukee, be sure to check out beloved establishments like Third Space Brewing, Hacienda Brewing Co., and Good City Brewing.

Don’t Forget Your Bike

Milwaukee is a city for bike lovers. With its compact design, a bike-share program, and cyclist events, it has been ranked one of the top states for those who prefer gliding on two wheels. For those who live outside of Milwaukee, exploring the city is easy with Bublr Bikes, the city’s bike-share program.

Look for Local Bites

When you land in Milwaukee, your first priority should be indulging in some delicious farm-to-table fare. Next to California, Wisconsin ranks second in the country for the number of organic farms. Whether you’re visiting one of the many farmer's markets or checking out a beloved eatery like Odd Duck, you’ll be amazed by the quality of the locally sourced ingredients.

Consider a Virtual Tour

Looking for a new apartment can be overwhelming, especially when you’re moving from afar and can’t see an apartment in person.
