Located on the southwest shores of Lake Michigan approximately an hour’s drive north of Chicago, Milwaukee is a city that truly has something for everyone. Summerfest, a 10-day event that brings musicians from all over the world to play, kicks off a summer of cultural and ethnic festivals. From Asian Moon Festival to Irish Fest to Mexican Fiesta, the lakefront brings people together of all ages to enjoy the ethnic and cultural diversity our city is so proud of.

Culturally, Milwaukee offers numerous museums, a vibrant theatre district, a beautiful park system, the Boerner Botanical Gardens, the Milwaukee County Zoo, and the Mitchell Park Horticultural Conservatory and is home to the Milwaukee Ballet and the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra.

For the sports enthusiasts, Milwaukee is host to the Milwaukee Brewers baseball team, the Milwaukee Bucks basketball team, the Milwaukee Admirals hockey team, and the Milwaukee Wave soccer team. Collegiate sports also abound in our area with Marquette University and the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

Milwaukee also offers a tremendous wealth of outdoor activities. In the summer months, one can sail on Lake Michigan, swim in an inland lake, mountain bike on a scenic trail or golf on one of our many available public courses. When the snow comes, cross-country skiing, downhill skiing and snowmobiling is available.

People that live here often refer to Milwaukee as a “little big city”. It is large enough to offer the cultural, sports and entertainment of a large city, yet maintain its small town sense of community. Come visit and learn why Milwaukee is the Genuine American City.
