Brookfield

Since Brookfield is incredibly popular with renters, you may need to be vigilant if you're hoping to find an apartment that ticks all your boxes. And while it's easier to find two- or three-bedroom homes, you can still find a great one-bedroom apartment if you look hard enough.

Does Brookfield Have Any Must-See Attractions?

Despite its small size, you'll find plenty of fun things to do in Brookfield. This is the home of the Brookfield Zoo, which features 450 species of animals in a 216-acre area. The Brookfield Zoo boasts an indoor rainforest simulation and dolphin exhibit, and it was the first zoo in the entire U.S. to host giant pandas. It doesn't matter how old you are, stopping by the Brookfield Zoo is sure to make you feel like a kid again.

If you prefer a more peaceful way to spend a free day, then take the time to visit the Brookfield Woods. This picturesque park is directly north of the zoo, and features a 6-mile walking and biking trail, making this a great place to get some exercise.
