I think that Milwaukee, with its blue collar vibe and working class history, has to be one of my favorite cities to visit.  The fact that it sits on the shores of Lake Michigan, makes it seem like you are by the sea.  The streets and alley's are awesome places to ride and meet people.  Everyone seems down to earth. Bookstores and record shops are in good supply.  Along with plentiful options for independent food and drink. Every visit ends up feeling too short. Thanks to Jack and Amira for being the best hosts.
