Yep, Milwaukee's made another list.
This time, Milwaukee lands on Anne Roderique-Jones', a freelance travel writer at Yahoo! and other sites, list of "7 Underrated but Intriguing U.S. Cities You Need to Visit."
The New York City-based freelance writer who lives in "Manhattan with her husband and obese cat" spotlights several Milwaukee institutions in her story including our festivals, Sanford, Bryant’s Cocktail Lounge and Story Hill BKC.
Here's the full blurb on Milwaukee.
"Milwaukee, Wisconsin: Its nickname, "The City of Festivals," is a good-enough reason to visit Milwaukee. Playing host to Summer Fest, the largest music festival in the world, along with Irish Fest, PrideFest, Polish Fest, German Fest, and loads of other fun fest-type happenings, is year-round fun. On the other hand, Milwaukee is home to the Florentine Opera Company, the Milwaukee Theatre, the Milwaukee Ballet, and the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra — making it a hotbed of culturally rich happenings. Dining-wise, it’s no different: While the city may conjure up images of cheese, these days it’s of a more artisanal variety, as Milwaukee has amassed its share of James Beard nods — Justin Aprahamian’s Sanford being a standout. The cocktail scene has gained accolades for being free of pretension yet creatively sound. From Bryant’s Cocktail Lounge to Story Hill BKC, tipples here range from old-school classics to the draught variety."
Other cities on the list include Fort Worth, Oakland, Pittsburgh, Kansas City and Louisville.
