Which city is overall better. I know Houston is bigger, but it doesn't mean its better. I know there is a lot of cool things to do there I assume. Milwaukee has a lot of cool things to do as well and has a lot going on for itself at the moment. Which city is cooler and overall more vibrant. Which one would you want to live in? Better schools? Just better...which one?

For me it's Houston. I prefer Milwaukee's urban core and its proximity to Chicago, but Houston for pretty much all else.

I think once you get to a certain size every city will offer more than enough amenities to satisfy everyone who is willing to get out and enjoy themselves.

Anyone who says they can't enjoy themselves in any of these cities must be incredibly boring people who look for the negative in everything.

Milwaukee.
Nice town in it's own right. Extremely livable and vastly cleaner, but not always squeaky clean. Way less chaotic and scatterbrained than Houston.
Chicago is nearby.

I've been to both. Only thing I would take for Milwaukee is how close it is to Chicago. Houston however pretty much wins in any other category for me.

Houston, hands down. Most people who would vote for Milwaukee would only do so because it's close to Chicago, which doesn't really reflect very well on Milwaukee.

I keep seeing Milwaukee and Houston compared on these boards...not sure why. I'd figure weather alone would be the determining factor.

Houston is way, way bigger, so it's not the best comparison. Most will either vote on size or weather here, since both are so different in each category.

I'd take Milwaukee for Milwaukee, forget about Chicago being close, but I'm not worried about a few "lost amenities."

Exactly; if you are going to brag about a city (explain its offerings), why talk about how close it is to another city? That implies that the city doesn't have much to begin with.
