If you’re planning a trip to Milwaukee make sure to also consider our Milwaukee car hire services as part of your budget as you will surely want to have a car at your disposal while there. Even though it is not the state capital, Milwaukee is the largest city in the state of Wisconsin and the 22nd largest city in the country overall.

Milwaukee can be reached by almost any type of transportation mode possible, it’s mostly a matter of preference.

The city is served by several airports, the main one being the General Mitchell Airport, however one can land in the relatively nearby Chicago airports and still get to Milwaukee rather quickly. If you do end up touching down here, make sure to consider employing our Milwaukee car rental services and have a car of your choice ready and waiting for you at the airport at an hour that you specify. As mentioned earlier you can also reach the city by rail, road and even boat.

The city is rather large, and while not a major tourist destination, there are several attractions spread around it to keep a visitor occupied for days.

You may want to visit the Hoan Bridge which is arguably the most recognizable Milwaukee landmark. This tied arch bridge is suspended over the port of Milwaukee on the eponymous river.

The Pabst Brewery is an important part of the city’s history, the Brewery Complex can be found on the north east side of downtown. The complex features many “old world” style buildings and while the brewery itself doesn’t operate anymore it is still an icon of the city.

Another Pabst related attraction is the Pabst Mansion which is a Flemish Renaissance Revival Mansion built in 1892 for Captain Frederick Pabst the famous beer baron and sea captain. He was a real estate developer a philanthropist and a patron of the arts and every little bit of that is reflected in the artifacts and décor of the house.

Yet another recognizable landmark of Milwaukee are the Domes, these are three huge glass domes which house a desert habitat, a rainforest as well as the city’s horticultural gardens.

These are just a few of the things that you can see and do while in Milwaukee so make sure to employ our Milwaukee car hire services in order to better explore the city and its many attractions.
