Relax, people. Milwaukee's nearly stress free.
Ah, yes, another list is out and this one, via Forbes, cites "America's Most Relaxed Cities." Milwaukee, our fine home town, sits pretty at No. 2. The Twin Cities, our neighbors to the north, ranked No. 1 on the list that was published last week on Forbes.com and on content partner Yahoo.
Here's the description of Milwaukee, "Another friendly Midwestern city, Milwaukee, Wis., takes second place. Milwaukee pulls ahead of other large metros in part because of its healthy work-life balance. The city boasts great commute times and short working hours. Just over 96 percent of its residents take less than an hour to get to work, and the average amount of time spent toiling away is among the lowest in the country, a manageable 38.4 hours per week."
