Southeast Wisconsin

City life. Lake life. Work-life balance. You can have it all here in Southeast Wisconsin. 

Welcome to Southeast Wisconsin

Love cities? How about easy access to quieter, rural areas? Southeast Wisconsin could be perfect for you. Milwaukee will offer the urban living you enjoy. Head in any direction from there (well, except into Lake Michigan) and reach smaller, vibrant communities in no time. 

Largest Southeast Wisconsin Employers

Logos look familiar? You could bring your talents to some big-name companies in this region. These are the largest employers, but not all the opportunities you’ll find. Milwaukee is also the nation’s No. 4 best city for entrepreneurs.

“I can make a bigger impact here in Wisconsin. In addition to the career opportunity, Wisconsin has a lower cost of living, which provides my growing family a higher quality of life.”

Michele Raysich, architecture, Milwaukee

Your Weekend Plans

There’s the Harley-Davidson Museum, three professional sports teams, plenty of breweries—and that’s just in Milwaukee. You’ll love experiencing everything outside the city, too. From Holy Hill in Hubertus to historic downtown Cedarburg and fishing in Port Washington, you’ll be busy!

  • Admire the historic homes on a scenic walk around Lake Geneva.
  • Climb the Southport Lighthouse in Kenosha and see two states on a clear day.
  • Hike along the scenic bluffs at Lion’s Den Gorge Nature Preserve.
  • Love architecture? Check out the Frank Lloyd Wright buildings in Racine.

"We have the best of both worlds. We have a sort-of Silicon Valley or startup-style culture, but then we also have the work-life balance, low cost of living, and the great overall community here in Wisconsin."

Richard Wau, Bright Cellars, Milwaukee
