The Washington Post raved about Milwaukee's charms this week.

The Washington Post discovers Brew City

This week in its regular "You're Going Where?" feature, The Washington Post made a stop in Milwaukee.

The monthly series has hit places like Ann Arbor, Columbus, Omaha and Scottsdale, Arizona, among others.

For this month's installment, the Post sent Chicago-based writer Kate Silver to catalog the city's charms. The article is a pretty long one, but it probably was fairly easy for Silver, who writes that she's a regular visitor.

"My husband and I love making weekend trips here from our home in Chicago. It's small enough that it's easy to get around and feels safe, but big enough that we discover a new neighborhood, quirky shop, restaurant or bar every visit."

So what is it about Milwaukee that Silver likes?

There's the Pabst Brewery and Taproom. And Frank Lloyd Wright's works. And the Milwaukee Art Museum and the Milwaukee Boat Line cruises.

There's The Vanguard and Leon's; Braise and Benelux.

There's The Hen House, Brass Rooster and, of course, American Science and Surplus; Mod Gen and the Milwaukee Public Market; the Kimpton and the Hilton City Center; Bay View and the Third Ward.

"There's always something to celebrate in Milwaukee," Silver writes. "Really, any occasion is good there to pack the flask and break out the party gear."
