Milwaukee, the eighth best "River Town" in America

If you don't already appreciate our hometown's amazing access to water, you should. Our beaches, Lake Michigan, the countless inland lakes and, of course our rivers. All are wonderful reasons why we live where we live.

Outside Magazine and its readers are noticing Milwaukee's ways with water too as its latest issue tags Milwaukee as the "eighth best River Town in America."

Boosting the headline, "A city reinvented as the Silicon Valley of water," the feature on Milwaukee is wonderful and focuses on what many of us know, Milwaukee's a gem and still too much of a "hidden treasure."

It begins, "'People underestimate Milwaukee,' says reader Nancy Welch. It's a common theme among residents who voted for their hometown. So are the innovative ways the city has reinvented itself over the past decade, most of them involving water."

Read the full post here, and get out this weekend and enjoy our water. Even if you don't swim in the Lake or kayak the Milwaukee River, remember that beer, after all, is also mostly water.
