Close one. I really like both cities. I give it to Milwaukee for the lake.

I think they are both pretty equal as well, but I would have to give it to Cincinnati for their Over the Rhine neighbourhood, which I find so very impressive!

Two great cities that both have exploding downtown areas and decent nightlife. I'd give it to Milwaukee for it's proximity to the lake and Chicago.

I'd give it to cincinnati. That said I've never been to milwaukee but I had a friend who grew up there and he never wanted to go back. I'm from Ohio though so maybe that makes me biased. One thing cincinnati will have though is slightly better winters if that's a consideration at all.

Milwaukee today is VERY different from Milwaukee of the 80s, 90s, or even early 00s. I'm sure the same can be said of Cincinnati (I've only visited once, in 2012), but Milwaukee isn't the same as when your friend grew up.

To me this is a dead heat. Edge Cincinnati due to better location and weather, bigger metro. The NKY side of the metro adds things Milwaukee doesnt have....city to city they are pretty equal in size and downtown, walkability, etc.

Man this is a close one. I really love both of these cities! I'll give the edge to Cincinnati because I really love the Architecture there.

Both are great, but I narrowly prefer Milwaukee for the local food there, and also the fact that I slightly prefer Milwaukee's museums. Though I agree with the person that Cincinnati would win, when it comes to winter weather not being as cold. That said, the winters in Milwaukee aren't the end of the world, since I've visited during then, and I'm used to Chicago winters.

Also a reason I narrowly prefer Milwaukee, is the bus service(when I looked at service maps and schedules) seemed to be a tad better too, since most routes in MKE ran even to late hours. I am aware Cincinnati just began a downtown streetcar system that connected that area to nearby neighborhoods(i.e. Over the Rhine), and that Milwaukee was about to start one as well.
