What Are Your Favorite Spots In Milwaukee?

We've got this cool thing down and Milwaukee made MSN's top 10 coolest cities in the midwest, but we could show off our coolness a little more in our photo gallery.

Milwaukee made MSN's list of the top 10 coolest cities in the midwest, but we know there's a lot more cool to be had than just a few photos of SummerFest, the Milwaukee Brewers stadium and the Milwaukee Art Museum.

We define cool here because well... it's cold here and we tend to warm up with a beer or two, and hey, cool things just naturally happen.

So we wondered if you would upload a few pictures of what defines Milwaukee's coolness. I already added a few of my favorites.

The remnants of Milwaukee's "Gold Coast" on Milwaukee's east side. There are still quite a few architectural treasures nestled among the medium-rise condo buildings. Yes, there are negative connotations associated with the pre-socialist history of the über-wealthy of our city (as in egregious treatment of resources and workers), but there are also First Families who have done amazing work in bringing art and culture to our city. Descendants of several of those families are still with us, and their names and other great families are still found in the museums and music venues of Milwaukee. That's the legacy I cherish.

There are some lovely neighborhoods to walk through if you're looking for architecture. The Washington Highlands in Wauwatosa is nice. And I think there are a few of the old mansions left along Highland Blvd. further east.

Milwaukee is not as cool as it could be do to ineffective leadership. We start at the top with Mayor Barrett, common council, and supervisors. There is not a dynamic leader in Milwaukee anymore, too bad.

Get rid of barrett, the mayor, get rid of abele, the county exec, change the Milwaukee Common Council, change the County Board (Make them smaller) Keep Sheriff Clarke, build the high-rise where the lake front transit center is. Don't have a trolley line, add more small busses. Cutluraly, I think it's a great city with lots of activities. If you can't find something to do in the Milwaukee area, you're not looking.
