Moving to a new city requires a lot of adjustments. Suddenly, the most mundane activites become adventures, from where you go to buy a bagel to where you go to grab a cup of coffee. Whether you relocate to San Francisco or Sanibel Island, every new place has lots of new things to enjoy or to wish were different.

That said, this Sound-off reaches out to people who moved to Milwaukee from somewhere else. What was the biggest obstacle you encountered after moving to Brew City? Or, on the flip side, what was the most welcoming aspect of moving to The Mil?

Email us at and if picked, we'll post your response next Sunday. Only submissions that include your full name and where you live will be considered.

Last week's question: What does Brew City still need?

Brew City needs to add a little more fun and competition to the leisure scene -- something other than a good game of bowling.  Whirlyball, classic bumper cars with a twist, would be a great addition. Dave and Busters, a bar and arcade, would draw a crowd of game junkies. We do need to shake it up.

A contemporary art museum! Please!

Milwaukee right now needs to have places that you wont find anywhere in the state to become a big city attraction. I believe Milwaukee needs a Downtown IKEA, upscale movie theater, ESPN Sportszone, and maybe an American Girl store. This would be a start, but then again, The House of Blues could've been a start also. No more malls. Instead, Milwaukee needs to have downtown shopping district like Michigan Avenue.

I think Milwaukee (the region at large) needs an IKEA. Plain and simple.
