Vote for Milwaukee as a great city by the beach

Another day, another nomination. 

Milwaukee has been raking in the accolades lately, and today brought in a new one, as the Cream City was nominated by Outdoor Magazine as a best beach town. Beach City, USA. Yes, that's Milwaukee. 

If you're wondering how or why Milwaukee's seen as a beach city, you shouldn't be. Outdoor Magazine shared the method to its ranking madness stating, "We looked for places with great access to trails and public lands, thriving restaurants and neighborhoods, and, of course, a good beer scene – all while excluding the winners and runners-up from the past three years to make room for hidden gems, underdogs and towns on the rise." 

Milwaukee certainly meets those standards and much more. This year, Outdoor organized the contest by the type of town, with river, culture, beach and mountain burgs battling it out in their respective brackets until there's one of each remaining. 

In the first round, Milwaukee is pitted against Bellingham, Wash. – and we are not in the lead. So, you have three more days to have your voice be heard and move Milwaukee in the winner's circle. 

So, vote Milwaukee!
