City of Festivals. There’s always a party going on in Milwaukee, and the Henry W. Maier Festival Park and the shores of Lake Michigan are where it all goes down.

The slang. If you’re moving from the west, east, or south, you’ll want brush up on some northern slang you’ll likely hear in Milwaukee. First, a water fountain is called a “bubbler,” and if you’re used to asking for a “pop” or “coke,” try the word “soda” instead. Next, you might be called a “cheesehead” because of the Green Bay Packers, so don’t get offended – it’s a term of flattery. Also, everyone says “eh?” at the end of their sentences, so don’t feel afraid to try it out next time you’re talking.
