Milwaukee Car Rentals
Milwaukee is the biggest city in the Badger State. Milwaukee is where Pabst Blue Ribbon, Harley Davidson Motor Company, and Kohl's department stores are headquartered. Beer, hogs, and retail stores aren't the only things in this Midwestern city. You'll find plenty of friendly residents wearing hats that resemble cheese wedges as well as many opportunities to try local brews, enjoy a walk along Lake Michigan, and even see some world-renowned art. Visit these three attractions to get a taste of Wisconsin:
Drive your Milwaukee rental car to 1265 Lombardi Avenue in Green Bay, and you're sure to encounter a sea of green and yellow fans milling about outside of Lambeau Field. This location is the home of the Green Bay Packers National Football League team. The facility was dedicated in September 1957, when the Packers beat the Chicago Bears 21-17. It was originally named "City Stadium", but the name changed in 1965 after Earl "Curly" Lambeau's death. Lambeau founded the team, who was a player and served as coach for a combined total of 31 years. Without this athlete, the team would never have existed.
The most-attended game ever played at this field was on Oct. 6, 2013, when Green Bay played Detroit in front of 78,200 fans. The Cheeseheads are serious about their team, sporting official Aaron Rodgers, and Clay Matthews jerseys all year round. The enthusiasm in this crowd is always top-notch as fans support their favorite NFL team from late summer preseason matches, to the championship games that leave their mark on the Packers' victorious history.
Milwaukee Pedal Tavern
Many people associate Milwaukee with its abundance of delicious local brews. The beer industry thrives here between craft breweries and the Pabst Blue Ribbon Company. If you love beer and want to see the city while enjoying some, you'll love the Pedal Tavern. Drive your Milwaukee rental car to 800 South Second Street to Steny's Tavern, where the Pedal Tavern tour begins. You’ll hop on a unique 16-person bicycle and start your journey. Your group will pedal the famous 3rd Ward and along Walker's Point, stopping at local bars and enjoying drink specials.
If you have specific establishments in mind, you can make requests. Those less familiar with the area can follow along as the guides suggest great spots to visit. A seat on a public pub crawl is just $25, and you don't have to bring a whole group to fill up the bicycle tavern. However, it is available for group rentals if you have 16 people to power the bike. You'll get a workout, a history lesson, and some great beers on this fun tour!
Milwaukee Art Museum
It's easy to spot this unique building from many vantage points throughout the city. Reminiscent of Sydney Opera House, the Milwaukee Art Museum is a beautiful site that contains even more interesting things to look at. The facility covers 341,000 square feet and includes 30,000 works of art. Famous artists whose works are featured here include:
- Pablo Picasso
- Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec
- Andy Warhol

Inside the museum, you can enjoy the War Memorial Center, and the Kahler Building. Outside, the Quadracci Pavilion is a great spot to enjoy the breeze off of Lake Michigan. There are many traveling and permanent exhibits here that showcase fashion, paintings, sculptures, drawings, sketches and many mixed-media pieces. This is a great place to spend a few hours if you are looking to get inspired or learn about some of the biggest names in the art world.
