Top tips for renting a car in Milwaukee

  • The city of Milwaukee, nestled on the edge of Lake Michigan, is the perfect place to rent a car, as it is easy to navigate with its wide roads and sparse traffic. Avoid the discomfort of public transportation by renting a car, which you can drive all over the city while visiting its famous sights, including the Miller Brewery, or Miller Park, home of the Milwaukee Brewers. A rental car is also a great option for those looking to explore other areas around Lake Michigan, or even cross the state border for a day trip to Chicago, which is only 90 miles south of Milwaukee.
  • All the major car rental agencies can be found at General Mitchell International Airport (MKE), located just six miles south of downtown Milwaukee. The car rental counters are situated on the first floor of the main airport parking garage, right next to the baggage claim area. Most companies are open from early in the morning (6-7 a.m.) until late in the evening (11 p.m. to 12 a.m.).
  • Driving in Milwaukee is fairly easy, as the city features wide, uncongested roads, and a good highway infrastructure system. Drivers should know numbered streets run from north to south, while named streets run from east to west. Turning right on a red signal is usually allowed unless a sign states otherwise. While it's best to drive around in the summer months, those wishing to avoid big crowds should know that the summer season sees plenty of lakeside festivals.
  • Milwaukee traffic generally flows nicely throughout the day, with the city having one of the shortest commute times in the country, but congestion can still happen during rush hours. Avoid driving during peak times; traffic headed into the city gets worse between 7 and 8:30 a.m., and then again between 4 to 5:30 p.m. as people leave the downtown area. The main congestion points are the Marquette Interchange, the Stadium Interchange, and the Zoo Interchange.

Saturdays are free in some areas downtown, and street parking is free on Sundays and public holidays everywhere. You can apply for Temporary Overnight Parking Permission, which will let you park your car for free overnight on any Milwaukee street.
