For many, this may be exactly the appeal of Milwaukee: it's easier to handle than Chicago. For all the comparisons made in this thread (I made some myself), let's be real: Milwaukee is a large mid-American city while Chicago is a world class mega-city. Everything about Chicago is bigger, faster, on a completely different scale from Milwaukee. They feel completely different, at least to me; I've never felt overwhelmed in Milwaukee, while it's hard to not feel overwhelmed in Chicago, even with a fair amount of experience there.
