Only a hour down I-90, Milwaukee is the know as the city of festivals, the most famous is the annual Summerfest Music Festival. This 10 day music, beer and food festival that takes place in an awesome setting on Lake Michigan brings the whole state out to party (and a few FIBS from Chicago). With top music acts, great Midwestern fare and a many drinking pavilions each featuring a different beer from Wisconsin (and few other places), Summerfest may rival Munichâ€™s great Octoberfest, Iâ€™ll need to investigate that.
The cities were ranked on a five point scale, but Milwaukeeâ€™s ready access to the best beer, brats and cheese in the world make it a obvious winner.
Rounding out the top 10 are
#2 Minneapolis/St. Paul
My home town, San Francisco, squeeks in at #20. We got work to do!
