Cars for Sale in Milwaukee, Wisconsin
With a population just over half a million, Milwaukee situates itself as the largest city in the state of Wisconsin. Its rich immigrant history extends back to its founding by French explorer Solomon Juneau in the 1840s. “Milwaukee,” an old Algonquian word meaning “gathering place by the water” is a very apt name for a city that sits on the bank of Lake Michigan. Film buffs will likely recognize it as the city from Bridesmaids, though TV-trivia fanatics will hail it as the setting of Happy Days long before that.
One of the most distinguishing features of Milwaukee’s is its extensive brewing history. The 1982 American League Champion Milwaukee Brewers are a testament to this history and tradition. Notable breweries such as Pabst, Schlitz, Miller, and Blatz have all called this city home at one point or another. The “City of Festivals” is also known for one of the largest music festivals in the country, Summerfest, that attracts more than one million visitors annually.
The vast parks system in Milwaukee was designed by the same architect that designed New York City’s Central Park, giving Milwaukee the distinguished honor of having the 19th best park system among the most populous cities in the country. These 140 parks cover an area of more than 15,000 acres, and offer a wealth of activities ranging from ice skating to disc golf.
