Car Hire Milwaukee

Milwaukee Airport Guide

Milwaukee is a city of architecture, history, brewing and festivals so there’s plenty to keep you occupied. Some of the world’s most creative buildings can be found in the city and spend some time looking up the Milwaukee Art Museum, as famous for its building as the art inside. The US Bank Centre is the city’s tallest building at 42 floors whilst the Hoan Bridge is the last of its type in the US.

Despite the collapse of the major brewers, there are still several micro-breweries where you can take a tour and see how beer is made. Try Sprecher’s which also makes soft drinks so you can take the kids along too.

Milwaukee Info

Milwaukee began life in 1818 as the settlement of a fur trader. Thirty years later, after regular minor strife and the Milwaukee Bridge War between the three towns, it was decided that the fortunes of it and two other settlements could be improved if they banded together and so today’s Milwaukee was formed. Once heavily reliant on manufacturing and brewing, both sectors have declined and, along with many US cities, the service sector is now the main breadwinner.

Milwaukee Trivia:
  • Milwaukee is the largest city but not the capital of Wisconsin
  • It was founded in 1846 by the merger of three smaller towns
  • The name Milwaukee comes from the native language meaning gathering place
  • The city has the fourth largest Polish contingent in the US
  • Famous in the past for its brewing industry, only Miller remains today
