A Major League City
When it comes to sports, Milwaukee is definitely in the major leagues with two professional sports teams – the NBA's exciting Milwaukee Bucks, which won the National Basketball Association national championship in 2021; and the Milwaukee Brewers professional baseball team, which won the National League Central Division in 2021. Milwaukee is also home to the Milwaukee Admirals professional hockey team and the Milwaukee Wave professional soccer team.
And just a few hours to the north is legendary Lambeau Field, home to the Green Bay Packers.
Milwaukee is a great college town as well, home to the legendary Marquette Golden Eagles and UW-Milwaukee Panthers NCAA basketball teams. Just a little more than an hour away in Madison, Bucky Badger hosts the perennial bowl-attending Wisconsin Badgers football team as well as a host of other exciting collegiate teams, including men’s hockey and women’s volleyball.
Wisconsin also has become known nationally as a golf destination thanks to its hosting of major golf championships in recent years, including a recent U.S. Open, two U.S. Women’s Opens, three PGA Championships, a U.S. Senior Open, a U.S. Amateur and the Ryder Cup. The U.S. Senior Open will return in 2023 and the U.S. Women’s Open comes back in 2025.
