Often it takes a non-local for us locals to appreciate all that Milwaukee has to offer. Admit it, you don't explore our city as much as you'd like. None of us probably do.

Thankfully, though, our fine staff and those from the countless travel sites and blogs continue to find the gems and jewels that make Milwaukee great.

The latest collective list comes from In a post called "Traveler's Guide To Quirky Milwaukee," writer Jessica Festa takes a tour of several of the places that help keep Milwaukee weird and wonderful.

The Bronze Fonz, Bryant's, Kochanski's, Safe House and others made her list.

Enjoy it here and remember to support all of the quirky places that make Milwaukee great.
