Overview

Introduction to Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Milwaukee, Wisconsin, is one of the 25 largest cities in the United States. It is also the largest city in Wisconsin as well as an international seaport. Milwaukee is located in southeast Wisconsin, on the western bank of Lake Michigan, and an hour and thirty minutes west of the state capital, Madison.

Milwaukee is home to ten Fortune 1000 company headquarters, including such household names as Johnson Controls, Northwestern Mutual, and Harley-Davidson.

Milwaukee experiences all four seasons and rapidly changing weather. July is the warmest month of the year with an average temperature of 76 degrees Fahrenheit. January is the coldest month, with average temperatures remaining below freezing at 26 degrees Fahrenheit. The "lake effect" of Lake Michigan makes for cooler summers, warmer winters (than surrounding areas further from the lake), and plenty of snow.

Milwaukee History

The Milwaukee area was originally inhabited by several native American tribes. The first white settler to the area was a French Canadian fur trader who established a trading post in 1795. What was to become Milwaukee was originally three towns founded by three different men in 1833 and 1834. In 1846 the towns were combined and incorporated as the City of Milwaukee.

The name Milwaukee is derived from the Indian word Millioke, which, depending on interpretation, means "the good land," or "gathering place by the water," or "beautiful or pleasant lands."

Milwaukee Arts and Culture

Milwaukee is a center for the arts and culture, including conservatories, museums, the performing arts, and more. Some of Milwaukee's more notable museums include:

Milwaukee's many festivals include: Bastille Days, CajunFest, Festa Italiana, German Fest, the Great Circus Parade, the Holiday Folk Fair, Irish Fest, Mexican Fiesta, Polish Fest, Summerfest, and the Wisconsin State Fair.

Milwaukee Sports and Leisure

Milwaukee offers enough professional sports to keep most sports fans very happy. Milwaukee's professional sports teams include:

  • Baseball - The Major League Baseball (MLB) Milwaukee Brewers. For individuals who like Minor League Baseball (MiLB) action, the Beloit Snappers play an hour and twenty minutes southwest in Beloit, Wisconsin. The Snappers are a Class A affiliate of the Minnesota Twins.
  • Basketball - The National Basketball League (NBA) Milwaukee Bucks.
  • Football - The National Football League (NFL) Green Bay Packers play two hours north in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
  • Hockey - The American Hockey League (AHL) Milwaukee Admirals.

Of course, as one might expect of a city on one of the Great Lakes, Milwaukee also offers a tremendous number of water-related activities.
