Is Milwaukee, WI a good place to move to for someone newly divorced who is looking to start over? I’m looking for a good (affordable and filled with nice, friendly people) place to move from San Francisco
Milwaukee proper is a fairly large city (600,000+), and very multi-cultural. It is a very old city, with buildings from yesteryear as well as new builds.
Professional sports, as well as the arts, abound. Plenty of ethnic dining of high quality.
There is much activity through spring, summer & fall. One very fun activity in the summer is kite flying.
Milwaukee is not without violent crime, with the year 2000 reporting between 8000 and 9000 such crimes. Coming from SF, it wouldn’t be a big change.
If you aspire to advancing your education, there are several outstanding institutions of higher learning in the city.
Milwaukie is approximately 80–90 miles from Chicago, IL. If you can’t find “it” in Milwaukee, you’ll find it in Chicago.
Flying in and out of Milwaukee is quite easy, as well.
