MILWAUKEE, WI – (August 10, 2017) The Washington Post, one of the country’s largest daily newspapers, recently featured Milwaukee in its “You’re going where?” series. “Wisconsin’s largest city welcomes visitors with lake views, stellar food, never-ending brews and a hearty dose of Midwestern niceness,” the article declares.
