I have friends who own condos in Milwaukee's Third Ward, and get up there as often as they can...usually, week-ends. There is pretty much continuous development between Milwaukee and Chicago...if you go along Lake Michigan, it's developed all the way between the two cities. I will say, though, that those in Chicago probably think about Milwaukee, more often than those in northern Wisconsin do. The Milwaukee Bucks are an up and coming team, and they will be a definite draw from the rest of the state...the Brewers already are.

I tend to forget about San Antonio. It doesn't help when the region is called the Texas Triangle and the first three I think of are Houston Dallas and Austin. Sorry San Antonio.

Cairo, IL. It lost 85% of its population and looks like it got frozen in time since its heyday in the 1920's. Despite nobody caring about Cairo, I find myself exploring it a lot on streetview and youtube recently.

Paducah, KY. In fact I hadn't even heard about it since last week. It's somewhere in the middle of nowhere and nobody seems to talk or care about it.

St Louis has been forgotten. It used to be one of the largest and most important cities in the country, now it's really only known for the Gateway Arch and crime. Few people want to live in the city.

Surprised Spokane, WA hasn't been mentioned. Heck, most people can't even pronounce it correctly ('can' not 'cane'). It's consistently overshadowed by Seattle, Portland, and Boise in the PNW.

Also, Portland Maine seems to be pretty invisible on a national scale.

And yet ironically the place where Milwaukee has a very high profile is Chicago. Chicagoans readily go to Milwaukee, enjoy its attractions and generally at favorably disposed to Milwaukee. We definitely look at you as being in our neighborhood.

Good point. 20 years ago San Antonio was Texas' third city but Austin has really stolen its thunder in recent years.

Everyone has an opinion on Detroit, even people outside the US has an opinion on Detroit.
