Car Rental at Milwaukee Airport
Wisconsin’s largest city, Milwaukee, is an exciting Midwestern destination. Resting on the banks of Lake Michigan, the city offers cutting-edge art galleries, stylish eateries and an old-school charm. Add to that the city's strong renown for both beer breweries and Harley-Davidson motorbikes, and you have a cool base to explore the Midwest with rental cars from Milwaukee Airport. The General Mitchell International Airport itself is just eight miles from the downtown district, getting your trip off to a convenient start with easy access to all the delights of Milwaukee.
Main attractions in Milwaukee
The most photographed Milwaukee tourist sight is the Bronze Fonz, a tribute to Happy Days (which was set in the city of Milwaukee), and an ideal starting point for a downtown walk along the river. For museums, the Milwaukee Art Museum is a stunning art space nestled on Milwaukee Bay with a fantastic collection of paintings by Georgia O'Keeffe. Discovery World, a technology museum a few doors down, nicely completes the harbor area's crowd-pleasing attractions. You’ll also find the Harley-Davidson Museum, Milwaukee Public Museum, MSOE Grohmann Museum and the American Black Holocaust Museum in other corners of the city.
Several iconic attractions that truly represent the city can be visited with a rental car from Milwaukee Airport. The Harley-Davidson Plant allows true hog-heads to get a look at the factory floor and long tours should be booked in advance. It’s a little more than 20 minutes’ drive from Milwaukee to the plant in Menomonee Falls. The city’s breweries can also be visited when you choose to rent a car from Milwaukee Airport. These include behemoth beer producers like Miller and the oldest still-existent brewery in the city, Pabst Milwaukee Brewery.
Beer fans needn’t turn their noses up to massive macro-breweries like Miller, the city also houses a number of exciting craft beer breweries, pubs, and taprooms. Lakefront Brewery is particularly well-loved with a nice setting on the river with live polka bands and a finger-licking food menu. You’ll find other trendy options in the Historic Third Ward area.
Natural parks and hikes in Milwaukee
Despite its industrial origins and urban charm, Milwaukee is a fantastic base to explore Wisconsin’s national parks and the Great Lakes. In particular, Door County makes for a perfect excursion with a cheap rental car from Milwaukee Airport, offering a number of picturesque harbors and lakeside communities. Elkhart Lake, Lake Geneva, and Green Lake also make for ideal — non-Great Lake — waterside excursions. The Apostle Islands, St. Croix National Scenic Riverway and the Ice Age National Scenic Trail are among Wisconsin's best hiking trails and great places to enjoy some beautiful sights, fresh air, and exercise.
