All eyes are on Milwaukee, as the Democratic National Convention takes the stage in summer 2020.
This Southeast Wisconsin city has been busy preparing—proud to reveal its new arena, hotels, restaurants, streetcar and a plethora of entertainment options. Whether it's a weekend getaway or a daytrip, Milwaukee is a must-visit destination.
A great place to begin is just minutes from downtown, at Potawatomi Hotel and Casino. Home to nonstop gaming, seven restaurants, a renowned theater, Topgolf® Swing Suite, event space, luxury hotel and spa, this expansive entertainment venue truly has something for groups of all kinds.

TURN UP THE FUN.
The acclaimed Northern Lights Theater draws music and comedy fans for one-of-a-kind shows, while free local and regional entertainment plays several nights a week in the center of the casino floor at Bar 360.
