Milwaukee has its ups and down, good spots and bad spots; however, overall, Milwaukee is a robust city with a lot to offer, and opportunities for quality experiences (e.g., school, work, etc.) throughout.
Perhaps my favorite part is either the Lakefront area with the local Colectivo coffee shop or the historic Third Ward district.
My family lived in Milwaukee from 1965 to 1968, and then we moved back to Los Angeles, having moved to Milwaukee from California. Then we came back in 1972 and stayed until 1987, if you call that living. The awful smell of the city (there used to be a yeast factory and a coffin factory with formaldehyde and a tannery, and three breweries, all adding to the stifling stink. (Cown and paper mills elsewhere in Wisconsin add to the aroma.)
Well, the library downtown was nice, and the history museum and art museum, and you could go and see the Brewers play. But from September to may (sometimes even in June), you get snow! And it's cold (I remember some minus 20 to minus 40 F. days!). And it's horribly humid and moldy, and there is never a nice, cool breeze. You always seem to be sweating and unable to breathe. And in the summer the mosquitoes eat you alive, so you cannot even enjoy sitting outside. There ARE a lot of parks, but there is also a tavern on each street corner. About a million decent people moved away when the factories were closed by the traitors at the top, and now the city is basically "Chicago, junior", destroyed by so-called "minorities" who commit all the crime, and are actually the majority.
