You Say You Want a Revolution
Biking in Milwaukee has never been as popular as it is today. The city enjoys miles of bucolic trails, newly installed off-road paths, bike lanes stretching in just about every direction and organized rides that guarantee a good time. Throw in a thriving, dedicated cycling community, and Milwaukee is ready to roll.

Country Homes, City Ties
Milwaukee can be a magnet for those who crave the best of both worlds. Appreciating the pastoral serenity of the country and the hustle-bustle buzz of the city need not be mutually exclusive. Although discussions about the political polarization of southeastern Wisconsin often pit suburbs against city or rural against urban, the benefits of both ways of life make the debate almost irrelevant. In fact, many homeowners who have chosen a countrified lifestyle have also found strong and vital connection to all that the city has to offer.
