#6 with a caveat

Reason Magazine puts Milwaukee #6 on a list ranking the 35 biggest cities in America for "exercising personal freedom." However, as Ace notes, they didn't look at taxes, property rights, or the costs of doing business in the city; they used adolescent measures like strippers and junk food. But it's a neat vacation guide.

Chicago, of course, came in dead last. Vegas is first. Vacation accordingly.

This is the funniest sentence in the article: "Today, nearly one quarter of Chicago’s precincts are alcohol-free." Yeah. Just like there are no handguns in Chicago, 'cause they're banned. (Insert Capone joke here.)
