"Not That Bad" Milwaukee Warnings Or Dangers Tip by Graveyard_Plume
Milwaukee Warnings and Dangers: 27 reviews and 3 photos
I've lived in the suburbs of Milwaukee my entire life and within the city limits of Milwaukee for the past 5 years. I have never seen a crime take place. I've never had a crime happen to me or anyone I know with one exception - a friend recently had her wallet stolen at La Fuente, a local Mexican restaurant. Yes, there are areas of the city that are high crime areas; every city has them. But they certainly aren't going to be the areas you'll be vacationing in. And no, we do not have 3 shootings a day, even in the really bad areas.
It is common sense to use the buddy system no matter where you are. So when out at night have at least one other person with you.
Also, downtown Milwaukee is very well lit at night.
