Local Area: Diversity is everywhere, it's wonderful how much you can learn from the people. There are plenty of ethnicities represented in various shops and restaurants, always something new to try. My only complaints are parking, which is near impossible at times, and the weather, in the winter Wisconsin can be bitter cold, but summers are beautiful (sometimes muggy and hot).

Local Area: I love being in a big city, especially since I can go to Milwaukee Bucks basketball games for ten dollars! I just love the amount of things to do around town.
