In the Midwest, we use some strange language. Milwaukeeans are sometimes even worse, though none of us will admit that we even have an accent. Some of our words are odd and others have just been overtaken by Milwaukee accents. If you’ve lived here for a while, we’re sure you’ve picked up some new words, but are you pronouncing them in a true Milwaukee fashion?

While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
