Living by the motto of “work hard, play harder”, Milwaukee is a city that sure knows how to throw a good party! Rave with the locals at the annual Summerfest, where big-name bands headline an 11-day festival of non-stop dancing, or simply chug those weekends away with pints of cold brew beer if you’re not one for loud music!
Whether you’re the wild party animal or the zen traveller seeking a peace of mind, we’ve got you covered with ten of these Airbnb vacation rentals.
1. Hipster home near Old World 3rd Street (from USD 234)
Airy and filtered with an abundance of natural light, this home is perfect for those looking for a design-centric and yet, functional Airbnb apartment. On slow Sunday mornings, laze around on the long sofa as you catch your favourite sitcom on TV. Wake up to the chirps of the morning birds by your bedside - the cushy beddings could make it a challenge for you to roll out of bed! There’s even a storage space beside the sofa bed in the living room, so you don’t have to worry about clogging up the living room with your belongings.
