Popular Towns to Visit in Wisconsin

Milwaukee has a population of 943,427 as of 2020’s estimates. While there are many reasons to move to Milwaukee, one of the biggest is found in the work-life balance. In Milwaukee, you’ll find urban living and a certain Midwest ambiance combine to provide an ideal work-life balance for modern living. With short commute times, diverse and affordable neighborhoods, and big city amenities, Milwaukee offers so much to residents and newcomers alike.

Milwaukee is also known for its easy transport. Getting around town has never been easier than in Milwaukee where you can take a trip on the new Milwaukee streetcar, called “The Hop”. Simply hop on and go from the Milwaukee intermodal station to downtown, the Historic Third Ward, (home of the Milwaukee Public Market) or the lower east side with The Hop.

The Lakeshore Nature Preserve also offers outdoor lovers something special with a variety of walking and biking tours, including some which run along the shore of Lake Mendota. No matter the season in Madison, there’s always something for outdoor enthusiasts to do.

Finally, another reason to consider moving to Madison is the fact that the city consistently ranks as one of the “greenest” cities in America. With high marks in parks per-capita and the percentage of people who walk, bike, carpool, or take public transport to and from work, Madison has earned great scores in terms of sustainability. More than 15,000 acres of lakes and 200 miles of hiking and biking trails add to the capital’s environmentally conscious approach.
