I had lived on the East Side of Milwaukee for ten years, until I recently had gotten married and had a child. We now live out in the suburbs. The east side of Milwaukee is one of the safest and cleanest parts of the city. It is also known as the third ward, one of the most Historic parts of the city. As long as you stay away from the North and South sides of the city, Milwaukee is relatively safe. I would avoid the streets, Center and Locust, on the north side of the city, as these are two of the worst streets with the most crime.
The thing I loved most about living in Milwaukee was, there was always something to do. I love the museums. There is something for everyone, The Betty Brinn Children's Museum located on East Wisconsin Ave is a great place for kids to go and get hands-on learning. My favorite museum would be the Harley Davidson Museum. I love motorcycles. Even if you don't like motorcycles I guarantee you will love this museum. It shows the evolution of Harley and is the only place you can see Elvis' 56 KH motorcycle and the King Kong, which is a 13 foot motorcycle. It is impressive, just as Harley is synonymous with American craftsmanship, there isn't anywhere where you can see this than the Harley museum.
If I was to point out one bad thing about Milwaukee it would have to be, rush hour traffic in downtown. No matter how early I left for work, I barely made it to work on time. Coming home the commute on I-94 between 4-6 is a nightmare coming out of downtown. Overall though Milwaukee is a great city with a lot to offer.

We are leaving Chicagoland in search of some peace and quiet (and natural beauty). It is a tax credit complex for seniors. How does 10900 Donna Drive (53224) sound to you "Milwaukeeans"? Thank you so much. If …
