Waukesha, Wi

Some quotes from the Wikipedia page on the town:

The population was 70,718 at the 2010 census
In 2006, Money magazine ranked Waukesha 36th on its list of the "100 Best Places to Live", in the United States. In 2007 America's Promise ranked Waukesha one of the "100 Best Communities for Young People" in the United States. In 2010, Money magazine ranked Waukesha 50th on its list of the "100 Best Places to Live", in the United States.
 Waukesha is located near the center of Waukesha County in southeastern Wisconsin, 18 miles west of Milwaukee. Waukesha is also located 59 miles east of Madison. The city shares borders with City of BrookfieldTown of Brookfield,GeneseeNew BerlinCity of Pewaukee, Village of Pewaukee, Town of Delafield and Town of Waukesha.

 It seems a rather pleasant town, full of large trees and small parks.  The Fox River runs through the center (and apparently is erroneously thought to be the source of the town's Native American-ish name) and right by the city/county building that houses those working on the 'Zoo Project', which is the redesign of the 'Zoo' interchange and surrounding roads.  The interchange is located on the Western edge of Milwaukee, on the North side.  In fact right on the way to Waukesha itself, and named after the County Zoo which located at its Northwest corner.
