Thirty miles of pristine coastline. Thirteen beaches. A seven-mile trail that parallels the lake, connecting the cities of Manitowoc and Two Rivers. Canoe and kayak trails, hiking, biking, running, swimming, and fishing are all readily available along the coast. Our coastal destination also includes a lot of maritime history.
Manitowoc’s shipbuilding legacy draws thousands of people each year to tour the Wisconsin Maritime Museum and USS Cobia World War II submarine. Young visitors to the museum can enjoy the Waterways and Little Lakefarer’s Rooms, explore the lakeshore through a submarine periscope, and fire up a 65-ton steam engine.
Visitors to Manitowoc will also discover scenic lakeshore drives, a free zoo, an outstanding marina, gardens and galleries, parks, beaches and playgrounds.
