Summerfest BMO Harris Bank Stage

Attractions

  • The Milwaukee metro is big enough to offer world-class entertainment and professional sports, yet feels small enough to allow you to find your way around the city with relative ease.

    Milwaukee hosts its world-famous Summerfest music festival each summer on the lakefront. The 11-day music (and food!) celebration attracts nearly 900,000 attendees. With 11 permanent stages, including the 24,000-seat Marcus Amphitheater, Summerfest draws big-name talent from a plethora of musical genres.

    The Harley-Davidson Museum chronicles the over 100-year history of the legendary motorcycle manufacturer; other notable Milwaukee-area museums include the Milwaukee Art Museum, the Milwaukee Public Museum, and the Betty Brinn Children’s Museum.

    The Milwaukee County Zoo is one of the top zoological parks in the country. The 200-acre park is known for its open concept, which simulates the animals’ natural environments.

    Individuals who enjoy the world of gaming will want to visit Potawatomi Bingo Casino. Potawatomi attracts more than 6 million visitors annually and offers nearly 100 table games, 100 slot machines, a bingo hall, poker room, off-track betting room, a 500-seat theater, 6 unique restaurants, and a new 381-room hotel.

    Milwaukee is also known as a city of sports. It is home to the Milwaukee Brewers Major League Baseball team, which plays at Miller Park, a 42,000-seat, retractable roof stadium just west of downtown. The city also features an NBA team, the Milwaukee Bucks, an American Hockey League team, the Milwaukee Admirals, and a professional soccer team, the Milwaukee Wave.
