Again blanket statements about a side of town or a city are not accurate, the "near northside" is bad but west, northwest and far northwest side offers some nice safe and well kept neighborhoods.

-from the truth and accuracy department

MilwaukeeCity: I have no doubt your correct. I suppose your fine then if you stay in those neighborhoods, but what if you have to leave, to go shoping, work, school. What about traveling through those not so nice areas at night, and have your car breakdown?

And so. if the northside of Milw is not the worst, what is?

EAA fly in in the summer, Packers an hour away, Brewers and Bucks a little over an hour away, hunting in the fall. Nothing to do??? Come out and visit where I live. Then I can show you nothing to do.
Well, unless they groove on hunting, fishing, watersports and WI sports teams, then it certainly sounds like some folks may find little of interest there...

One area of WI I didn't care for very much was Crandon and the Forest County region. Beautiful woods and scenery but very dysfunctional towns in that area.

I've lived in many states and visited the rest and wisconsin is up there. People are polite on the surface, but that's about it. I've had a heck of a time breaking into established cliques, most of whom have been together since grade school. By far the hardest move I've ever made. Most of my friends are other out-of-staters experiencing the same thing. Dating? Forget it...

Haha, it's funny you mention that. That area has quite a reputation around here. Sort of an appalachian/upper midwestern hybrid. Very interesting stories to say the least.

Many Kentuckians relocated to that area long time ago. Your comment is correct.

It is hard to break into established "cliques" in Wisconsin, but not because of unfriendliness per se. People around the state just seem hold onto the friends and family they have for a long time and generally don't feel the need to expand their social circle, especially in smaller towns. I honestly didn't even notice it until I moved to a larger city, and I'm sure most of the residents that you're referring to have no idea that they're being perceived as anything but welcoming.
