Milwaukee made the list of one of the most underappreciated cities that people should consider moving to, check out a blurb from the article: Milwaukee, WisconsinBrews and views on laid-back Lake Michigan
City population: 598,078
Cost of living index: 92 (8% lower than US average)
If there's a city more Midwestern than Milwaukee, it's probably Sheboygan. But, that's really just because it's named Sheboygan. How 'bout Milwaukee? Nice people? Check. Lakefront property? Check. Beer, cheese, and sausages? Cheeeeeck. And while Cream City boasts an old-school, working-class, Germanic backbone, this hasn't been Laverne and Shirley's town for a long time. Milwaukee is a diverse cultural capital, boasting a world-class art museum, the world's largest music festival in Summerfest, and more craft breweries than you can shake a Usinger's meat stick at. Nobody's gonna stop you from cracking a cold Miller Lite or PBR, but you may just want to opt for a Brenner or Lakefront instead.
Milwaukee rents average around $1,200 but are far more reasonable the further afield you get from Lake Michigan. The vibrant, youthful set can be found on (warm) afternoons and weekends on that very body of water -- a true stunner. Or sucking down a giant Bloody Mary at Sobelman's. Or conjuring the password at SafeHouse. Or slopping up a bowl of Real Chili. Or reciting Alice Cooper quotes from Wayne’s World. And if you feel like your weekend options are limited, Chicago is an hour and a half (and about $25) away via one of the most dependable Amtrak lines from sea to shining sea. -- Colin St. John, Thrillist contributor
