Getting to Know Milwaukee Before Your Move
To help you get to know your new hometown a little better before your move, we’ve outlined some of the fun and exciting things that make Milwaukee such a great place to live and work. Milwaukee, located on the western shores of Lake Michigan, is just 90 minutes from the beautiful North Woods of Wisconsin and from Chicago. It is the main cultural and economic center of the Milwaukee-Racine-Waukesha Metropolitan area. The city both big enough to offer professional sports and world-class performing arts, yet small enough to navigate with ease.
What the Locals Love in Milwaukee
It’s safe to say you won’t be bored once you’ve finished unloading and unpacking the last of your moving boxes. From May through September, the city comes alive with an array of outdoor activities, including parades, music festivals, ethnic celebrations and church socials, bicycle races, sailing regattas, block parties and art fairs. For sports fans, there are year-round events that include professional basketball, baseball, soccer and hockey games, as well as NCAA Division 1 college basketball. And it’s just a short drive from Big 10 football (Wisconsin Badgers) and NFL football (Green Bay Packers and the Chicago Bears).
On the arts and culture front, few other cities offer such a variety of performances and venues. The Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra, under the leadership of Music Director Edo de Waart, performs 140 classics, pops, family and educational concerts each season, with nationally syndicated radio broadcasts heard on nearly 150 stations throughout the U.S. You’ll enjoy ballet and opera companies as well as a world-renowned African dance troupe. And head for the city’s lakefront each summer to celebrate the 10-day Summerfest, the world’s largest music festival, which features hundreds of bands performing at more than a dozen stages.
Nightlife & Culture in Milwaukee
You’re bound to need a night out after the hard work of moving, so be sure to check out Milwaukee’s nightlife. Known for brewing traditions, major new additions to the city add shopping, dining and entertainment options for all, like the Milwaukee Riverwalk, the Wisconsin Center, Miller Park, an expansion to the Milwaukee Art Museum, Milwaukee Repertory Theater, and Pier Wisconsin, as well as major renovations to the UW–Milwaukee Panther Arena. In addition, many new skyscrapers, condos, lofts and apartments have been constructed in neighborhoods on and near the lakefront and riverbanks.
