"Affordable, Mix Between Rural and City Life, Friendly, Good Schools, Community Focused"

MIlwaukee is a good mix between rural towns and the big city. There are not all of the glimmer and lights, and hustle and bustle of nearby Chicago. With that said, the traffic is reasonable and it easy to get from one side of the city to the other making commuting an option. Shopping is limited but the essentials can be found throughout the city.

Milwaukee has a diverse network of neighborhoods. Living in Milwaukee can be excellent for families, singles, couples, and retirees. There are different neighborhoods that could/would attract each. Housing for the most part, is very affordable for a city of its size. School and churches are of quality and have a strong foothold within the communities.

Things to do. The city has many sporting arenas for all venues. There are several historical sites and art displays throughout the city. They have a wonderful Botanical Gaarden and the Zoo is clean and well tended. Milwaukee offers an event for just about every ethnicity; such as Festa Italiana, German Fest, and let's not forget Summer Fest. Milwaukee has free jazz in the park in the summer and always has something going on somewhere.

My overall rating would be between a 3 and a 4.
