The metro region has earned a reputation as a center for precision manufacturing, leading the nation in the production of industrial controls, X-ray equipment, steel foundry parts, and mining machinery. Milwaukee became synonymous with beer in the Nineteenth Century, where more than two dozen breweries were in operation by 1856. Milwaukee was once the home to four of the world's largest breweries, and was the number one beer producing city in the world for many years.
Milwaukee’s metropolitan area is home to over two million residents, making it the 29th-most populous area in the country. It is situated on the western shore of Lake Michigan at the meeting of the Milwaukee, Menomonee and Kinnickinnic rivers, and features stunning classical architecture, beautiful historic neighborhoods, and a thriving riverwalk entertainment district. Milwaukee has a very strong sports culture as the home of two professional sports franchises, the Milwaukee Brewers and the Milwaukee Bucks; Milwaukee was also historically a part-time home to the Green Bay Packers, who continue to reserve home games exclusively for Milwaukee residents.
Milwaukee is a popular venue for Lake Michigan sailing, windsurfing, kitesurfing, ethnic dining, and cultural festivals. Often referred to as the City of Festivals, Milwaukee has various cultural events which take place throughout the summer at Maier Festival Park. The city hosts the Wisconsin State Fair, as well as an annual lakefront fair called Summerfest – the largest music festival in the world – which attracts more than a million visitors each year to its eleven stages. Other festivals include Riversplash, PrideFest, Polish Fest, the Great Circus Parade, Bastille Days, Festa Italiana, German Fest, Trainfest, and a variety of ethnic-themed festivals that celebrate the city’s extraordinarily rich and diverse culture.
