MSNBC touts "Milwaukee's best"

MSNBC travel writer Harriet Baskas is out with a story called "Secondary cities offer alternative to big-city vacations."  Milwaukee is prominently featured in the post that touts the ease and accessibility of smaller city destinations like our fine hometown.

Baskas says this about Milwaukee in a section titled "Milwaukee's best:"  

"'For years, Milwaukee’s General Mitchell International has touted its benefits -- namely affordable fares and overall convenience -- in an effort to lure Chicago O’Hare passengers,' said Pat Rowe, an airport spokesperson.

"The strategy has been working. The airport has seen an increase in travelers flying into Milwaukee and then driving or taking the train to Chicago.

"Milwaukee has plenty to offer visitors who stick around. 'There’s the Miller Brewing Company and the amazing Discovery World, a science center located on the lakefront,' Evans said. 'Mummies of the World,' the largest assembled exhibition of mummies and related artifacts, is now at the Milwaukee Public Museum, and Milwaukee is also home to the Harley-Davidson Museum.

"Visitors can also pose for a thumbs-up photo with the bronze statue of The Fonz, Henry Winkler’s character 'Happy Days,' said Dave Fantle of VisitMilwaukee.org. 'That's much cooler than posing with the bronze statue of Bob Newhart in Chicago'."
