Milwaukee Ranked the 7th Most Exciting City in America
Milwaukee has been called plenty of things over the years — Cream City, Brew City, a "rust belt” city, even sexy. Now it’s being hailed as one of the top-10 most exciting cities in America, as determined by the Movoto blog that posts real estate and city-related news.
Milwaukee ranked number seven in the study whose criteria included size of the young professional population, bars per square mile, number of big box retailers, diversity, arts and entertainment draws, and park acreage per person.
"We would have never guessed that Milwaukee would make our list,” Movoto wrote in Thursday’s blog announcing the study.
"It turns out that Brew City is simply solid on all of our criteria.”
Milwaukee was the only Midwest city to make the list.
