Another day, another nomination. 

Milwaukee has been raking in the accolades lately, and today brought in a new one, as the Cream City was nominated by Outdoor Magazine as a best beach town. Beach City, USA. Yes, that's Milwaukee. 

If you're wondering how or why Milwaukee's seen as a beach city, you shouldn't be. Outdoor Magazine shared the method to its ranking madness stating, "We looked for places with great access to trails and public lands, thriving restaurants and neighborhoods, and, of course, a good beer scene – all while excluding the winners and runners-up from the past three years to make room for hidden gems, underdogs and towns on the rise." 

Milwaukee certainly meets those standards and much more. This year, Outdoor organized the contest by the type of town, with river, culture, beach and mountain burgs battling it out in their respective brackets until there's one of each remaining. 

In the first round, Milwaukee is pitted against Bellingham, Wash. – and we are not in the lead. So, you have three more days to have your voice be heard and move Milwaukee in the winner's circle. 

So, vote Milwaukee! 

Carolynn Buser Chief Content Officer

Carolynn Buser is one of Milwaukee's loudest and most adamant cheerleaders (don't dare try to disagree). She's the primary voice behind much of OnMilwaukee's social media and content direction, and apologizes in advance if she can be too sarcastic at times. 

What else? She's a wine lover, closet trashy novel reader, beauty supplies addict and devourer of cheese (shocker for a Wisconsin born and bred girl, right?). She's also a bit of a foodie, which is a word most of you hate, we know. She works as hard as she plays - and that includes in the gym! So, you've probably seen her at one of the area's newest restaurant openings (and yes, she will share her opinions good or bad) or enjoying a cold one at a local pub.

All in all, Carolynn's a believer in positive thinking and will do her best to smack down your negative ones while writing about her city, her loves, quests and more.
