The largest city in Wisconsin (580,000), situated on Lake Michigan, 90-miles north of its big brother of Chicago, Illinois. Although the city proper population has fallen, the metro area is actually more hip than places like St. Louis, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh and Detroit, and is easily a smaller version of Chicago. It has a decent nightlife with its bars and stuff. The Milwaukee area is home to much beer production and Harley Davidsons, the most obnoxiuos monstrocity God created. Milwaukee--in many respects--is a very decent metro area of 1.6 million to live in, due to its proximity to Chicago and cheaper cost of living. It's even a good alternative to living in Chicago.
Milwaukee was the setting for Laverne and Shirley and Happy Days.
Milwaukee may not have the urban sophistication of New York, Boston, Phil, San Fran, Seattle and L.A., but it is decent and owes its decency to its proximity to Chicago. Milwaukee owes Chicago a whole lot of gratitude.
