Premier Milwaukee Movers – 414-764-0335

For those who are using their Milwaukee moving company to relocate to a new home, then you are in for some unusual surprises!

Milwaukee is most certainly an interesting place, which is what makes it so fun to explore when you first move there. Between the Fonz Statue, the Witch of Fox Point, and the famous polka-dotted cows, you will have a hard time deciding what to go see first. Besides, with your Milwaukee movers finishing unpacking everything for you, you will have plenty of time to take a break and go see what all the Milwaukee landmarks that the locals are talking about.

The Fonz Statue. The iconic tv show Happy Days was set in Milwaukee, so it’s no surprise that in 2007 some of the locals raised $85,000 to create a statue of Arthur aka “The Fonz.” Everyone who has already used Milwaukee movers to relocate to Milwaukee knows that the first thing you need to do is head over to the Milwaukee River walk and say hello to the Fonz.

The Witch of Fox Point. Back in the day, this lakefront home used to be known as “The Witch’s House.” Once home to folk artist Mary Nohl, the isolated artist was known for creating concrete sculptures that are over 60 inches tall, and that still stand outside of her old home today.

Des Vaches: Mo, Ni, Que. These polka-dotted cows are on display at the Lynden Sculpture Garden in Milwaukee. Your Milwaukee moving company will be among one of the first to tell you that these cows are some of the most famous in the whole town.

Can you imagine jumping into freezing cold temperatures – for free? Well, here in Milwaukee, the locals do exactly that at the Polar Plunge.

This past Polar Bear Plunge on January 1st saw many returning locals volunteering to dive head first into the freezing cold temperatures. According to one local, Daniel Kirkpatrick, “This is my 23rd year. This is our ceremonial baptismal ritual welcoming in the New Year. Actually an extension of New Year’s Eve from last night.”

For those who have just used Milwaukee movers to relocate to their new home town, you may be wondering why anyone would be crazy enough to jump into such cold temperatures at their own free will. Turns out, the locals simply do this simply for fun. Next year, that could be you and your family diving head first into the freezing cold temperatures!

The event is a free non sponsored event, open to the public and does not require registration. This Milwaukee tradition is held every year on New Year’s Day, and has a knack for attracting a lot of attention and swimmers. First-time jumper, Lauren Kortbein, described the Polar Bear Plunge as “You just feel the coldness and you get out, especially when you have your parents and family to warm you up.”

If your Milwaukee moving company has not already convinced you to sign up for the Polar Bear Plunge next year, then you might want to give it a second chance – after all, it’s what all the locals are doing!

Put a spin on your holiday celebration after moving to Milwaukee and sign up for a walking tour with Gothic Milwaukee. Running December 1 through December 23, guests are lured to the streets of downtown Milwaukee and walked through the interesting and sometimes eerie history of the city.

Your Gothic Milwaukee tour guide, Anna, is a native Milwaukeean and her knowledge of the city’s history and legends are sure to peak your interest and even chill you to the bone at times. Throughout the 1.25 mile walk through Downtown, Anna will entertain guests with the tales of past Milwaukeeans, the dark secrets hidden within the walls of certain Milwaukee buildings, and even point out where unsettled spirits are said to lurk.

Guided tour times vary depending on tour date, so our local Milwaukee movers strongly suggest making reservations. Tour tickets for adults are $10 each and $5 for children 12 years old and younger.

The Christmas walking tour begins in Pere Marquette Park and trails through the downtown streets of Milwaukee. Your elf tour guide will designate a break at midpoint in Red Arrow Park, where you and your family will have the opportunity to sit down, get warm, take pictures, enjoy the holiday lights and even purchase some hot chocolate.

Shake things up after moving to Milwaukee this holiday season and head on over to Pere Marquette Park for a Christmas walking tour that is bound to be one of the most interesting tours you’ll ever experience.

You and your family are not the only ones to have recently moved to Milwaukee. All My Sons Moving & storage of Milwaukee has learned that the Milwaukee County Zoo has received a 16-month old snow leopard named Asa from a zoo in Syracuse, N.Y.

Asa moved to Milwaukee County Zoo a few weeks ago and according to his zookeepers, Amanda Ista and Sheri Guay, he is adjusting very well. Most animals who are moved to a different zoo take a period of time to become comfortable with new surroundings because sights, sounds, smells and fellow animals are unfamiliar. Asa on the other hand, is already asking his keepers for regular back scratches in his own feline way.

Asa is one of two endangered snow leopards being housed at Milwaukee County Zoo, but officials at the zoo are expecting a third to be delivered next spring or summer in hopes of making a mate for Asa.

“Hopefully they’ll be together for a long time and have lots of cubs,” Asa’s zookeeper, Ista, said. “It’s important because snow leopards are extremely endangered. They’re so elusive, they really don’t know how many there are in the wild.”

Our local Milwaukee movers have learned that the Milwaukee County Zoo is likely one of the best places for Asa to be, in order to increase the population of snow leopards. According to the zoo they have a successful breeding program for the unique cats and have had a total of 33 snow leopard cubs born in their facility since 1985.

You can expect faster internet service if you are planning a move to Milwaukee in 2016. AT&T Inc. states it will be offering home Internet service at ultrafast speed to accommodate customers who are regularly downloading videos or using the network to communicate with others, also known as teleconferencing.

“As we get closer to the product launch, we will make people more aware of the details,” said president of AT&T Wisconsin, Scott T. VanderSanden.

Although not much has been said about what the ultrafast Internet service will entail, All My Sons Milwaukee movers have learned that Milwaukee is one of 38 markets expected to receive this service in 2016. The new gigabit service is said to give a customer enough Internet speed to download 25 songs in a second and an HD-movie in 36 seconds.

Dubbed the GigaPower service, AT&T has not specified exactly when the new service will be available to Milwaukee residents or which neighborhoods it will be offered to. It is also undetermined how much AT&T will charge for GigaPower, but in cities where the service is already available the cost is around $120 per month.

According to VanderSanden, “Basically any application that’s available today, no matter what it is, will just operate tons faster on this network.”

If you are planning a move to Milwaukee in 2016 and are like most residents that require high-speed Internet to complete daily obligations and activities, All My Sons Milwaukee moving company suggests looking into this service for your home.

Like City of Milwaukee Mayor, Tom Barrett, has said, “High-speed Internet connections are improving virtually every aspect of our lives, from education to health care, to employment opportunities to public safety.”

There may be more art enthusiasts moving to Milwaukee after the Milwaukee Art Museum announces it will be reopening its doors on November 24.

Milwaukee Art Museum officials had first proposed a $34 million-dollar renovation back in 2009 when the recession was at its peak. Many doubted that the renovation could be pulled off during such a time, but the museum had no choice. According to the museum’s director, Daniel Keegan, the museum was falling apart in many ways. There was presence of mold, floors were buckling and the ceiling was leaking, making it dangerous for both the artwork and museum visitors.

“We really had reached a breaking point,” Keegan said.

What many thought wasn’t possible happened 14 months ago. After securing $10 million dollars from Milwaukee County and raising the rest through donations, Milwaukee Art Museum was able to collect what it needed to close for renovation.

“We knew this was the opportunity to wipe the slate clean and really think about the best way to present the collection,” said Brady Roberts who is the Chief Curator of the Milwaukee Art Museum.

If you are moving to Milwaukee, you will definitely want to plan a trip to the recently renovated space. The newly-hired curatorial team completed a rehang of all pieces, including 1,000 new pieces, bringing the museum’s collection total to 31,000 pieces.

The Milwaukee Art Museum has also been expanded by 25,000 square feet, which includes incredible viewing areas of Lake Michigan.

All My Sons Moving & Storage of Milwaukee is looking forward to the museum’s re-opening and wishes the best of luck to Daniel Keegan. Keegan is retiring in May after eight years of employment at Milwaukee Art Museum.
