Milwaukee makes list of cities to watch in 2017

Milwaukee has made the list of six US cities to watch in 2017 according to Conde Nast Traveler.

Milwaukee was number two on the list after Baltimore.

The article had this to say about Milwaukee:

"Long overshadowed by its Midwest neighbors Chicago (92 miles), Minneapolis (337 miles), and state sister Madison (79 miles), Milwaukee has many, if not all, of the same qualities that make these sister cities buzz—and then some. Located on the shores of Lake Michigan, and at the convergence of three rivers, Milwaukee is, ironically, a water city in the middle of the country. Its ecologically diverse location makes it a hotbed of locavore cuisine, and a spate of award-winning restaurants have helped the city shed its beer-and-cheese reputation: Pay a visit to restaurants ArdentWolf PeachOdd Duck, and the Vanguard to see what we mean. New hotels are arriving, too: A Kimpton hotel opened in the historic Third Ward in June 2016, and in June 2017, a 220-room Westin Hotel will open downtown—the first one in Wisconsin. Come summer, the city is an endless party, with more than 40 festivals between June and September. Don’t miss the Milwaukee Art Museum, which, with 25,000 works of art, is one of the biggest in the country; bar-hopping the "tied" houses; or the Pabst Mansion and Theatre, both named after the famed beer family."

 Indianapolis, St. Louis, Fort Worth and Detroit rounded out the top six.
