Collage of areas around Milwaukee

Welcome to Milwaukee

As the largest city in Wisconsin, Milwaukee is home to nearly 600,000 people. It is perched on the western shore of Lake Michigan, which adds to its buoyant and diverse Midwest culture. Native Americans were the first to realize the beauty of the location - at the mouths of Kinnickinnic, Menomonee and Milwaukee rivers - naming it "Milwaukie," meaning "where the waters meet." Although most Milwaukeeans are American by birth, they celebrate their heritage, as 38 percent report having some German ancestry and 13 percent are Polish.

Milwaukee is a global center for advanced manufacturing, financial services, electronic commerce, and food and beverage producers - which is no surprise as its baseball team is called the Brewers and the state's football team, the Green Bay Packers, also dubbed "Cheeseheads." The city's metropolitan area consists of five counties: Milwaukee, Waukesha, Ozaukee, Washington and Racine. To get around, residents take advantage of the Milwaukee County Transit System, which has an expanse of bus routes all over the region.
