On the shores of Lake Michigan not far from Chicago, Milwaukee is a Midwestern hub best known for its beer. The city is home to the Miller Brewery, which visitors can tour, but the city’s economy doesn't rely on beer. Manufacturing, especially of machinery, is its big business. Six of Wisconsin’s 10 largest companies, including Johnson Controls (JCI), Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance, and Harley-Davidson (HOG), are based in Milwaukee. Beer and bike lovers alike might find their calling here.
