Family Moving to Milwaukee
You've made the decision to move to Milwaukee, and we are so glad that you did! Now you need to check a few boxes to get settled. Following is information that will come in handy as you get established in MKE!
There are many factors that will influence your quality of life in the Milwaukee region. First, and foremost, you'll have to decide if you want the urban vibe of a downtown neighborhood, or the feel of a suburban community. There are 90 communities in the five county metropolitan area, each with its own distinct advantages. Will you rent or buy? Staying healthy and fit is also an important part of the lifestyle you choose.
Looking for ideas on what to do in Milwaukee? You will be hard-pressed to find a weekend in Milwaukee when there is nothing to do. Milwaukee offers non-stop, year-round fun!
Southeastern Wisconsin is an innovation powerhouse that is helping to set the standards in finance, automation, medical imaging, software, green technology and advanced manufacturing.
If there's one thing Wisconsin residents take pride in, it's their schools - and it's for good reason. From Kindergarten throughout college, the state excels in academic achievement and offers its residents a wide range of educational opportunities, both public and private.

Milwaukee Stories

Meet Cecily and Colin O'Connor

We always wanted to move out of state. My husband was presented with the opportunity to be promoted at work, Graphic Solutions Group Inc., to grow their market up here, so we jumped on the opportunity! Lifelong Texans, we moved from Dallas and love the weather here, especially experiencing all four seasons. The cost of living in the metro area and homes within our price range provide a quality of life we would not enjoy in Dallas. 

Downtown Milwaukee has so much to offer without the stress! The traffic is very light and it is easy to get around— not overwhelming at all.  There’s a little bit of everything to enjoy. One of our favorite places to take family and friends is the South Shore Terrace overlooking Lake Michigan. They are always surprised how beautiful and friendly Milwaukee is.  

On our bucket list of places to explore: Door County in the fall, the Wisconsin Dells and camping adventures!
