"Milwaukee Is Safe" Milwaukee Warnings Or Dangers Tip by Dani91

Milwaukee Warnings and Dangers: 27 reviews and 3 photos

I live near Milwaukee and don't be fooled by the bad remarks made about it. Yes, there is crime, but so does every city, no matter how large it is. If you are smart about your actions, then you wont have any problems. There are bad parts of town, but no town is exempt from that, Milwaukee included. Just be aware of your surroundings and use the same common sense you would use in any other big city. As for the comment about Mayfair (which is in Wauwatosa, outside of Milwaukee) there have been problems in the past but there have been improvements (i.e. restriction of unaccompanied minors at night on the weekends) and all of the past problems occured later at night. I have never felt threatened or unsafe in Milwaukee. If you are a tourist, the "bad parts" arent anywhere where you would be anyways so dont fear.
