Living in Milwaukee

Milwaukee sits on the shores of Lake Michigan. Towards the north there’s a green belt of parks and bike paths, south there’s the harbor and the dock for the Lake Express, the ferry to Muskegon. Milwaukee County Transit runs the extensive bus service and MidWest Bike Share is looking to expand their offerings to other neighborhoods in the city.

Milwaukee is known for the Miller Brewery and Harley Davidson Motorcycles was founded here. Les Paul – of the famous guitars – came from nearby Waukesha. Brady Street is the place to go for cool coffee houses and indy shopping and downtown, foodies will enjoy the indoor Milwaukee Public Market.
