"I love living here"

It's definitely not for families with kids but for students, singles, young professionals, this is where you want to live. There's plenty of restaurants, bars, right down in the business district and close to the water front. It's unbelievably convenient for public transport, although you will pay high prices for the convenience and parking generally ranges from 90-150$ a month. On street parking can be purchased for $30/month I believe, but you will have to move your car every day.

"Plenty to see and do"

On W Wisconsin Ave you can get a little bit of everything. It runs out to the suburbs, but when you get close to downtown Milwaukee you see that everything downtown revolves around and is referenced in relation to, Wisconsin Ave. There is the Grand Avenue Mall with various stores to shop at like Old Navy, LInens and Things, and various jewelry and clothing stores. There are various hotels to choose from whether you want a Howard Johnson or the historic Ambassador Hotel. You will find bars, restaurants and the Midwest Express Center- Milwaukee's major convention center which further solidifies my opinion that downtown really does revolve around W Wisconsin Ave.

"A Great People Watching Street"

I'm trying to think of the best way to describe the paradox that is W Wisconsin Avenue. All different people from all different walks of life, different ethnic food shops, banks, churches, etc. Planned Parenthood isn't too far from a local church on this road, and you always see a few stray picketers outside of PP. Never any commotion, just quiet protest. Further down, there are a couple of different fast food restaurants to chose from, and hotels such as the Holiday Inn.

"Clean city street"

While we were visiting the city we had to drive by the famous Captin Frederick Pabst Mansion. It was off of a busy city street tucked between two buildings. The mansion sat on very pretty grounds. It was nice to drive by because this city street was very clean and nicley taken care of.
