When it comes to American cities, New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles dominate the market—and the conversation. Yet the Big Three continuing to grow more crowded (and more expensive) has proved advantageous to other cities across the country, which attract people with cheaper rents, space to create, and local cultural and culinary movements. And whether these "runway cities" are new to the tarmac, have been taxiing for some time, or are just about to take off, we can’t wait to visit them in 2017.
Congratulations to the Midwest Cities on the list:
2. Milwaukee, WI
3. Indianapolis, IN
