Boardwalk.
Since there is so little information on this sight for Sheboygan and I get asked from time to time what there is to do in the area, here are some ideas.

  • The boardwalk is interesting to go see and is where the restaurants were that I was reviewing.
  • Along the river which runs along the boardwalk you can also take a sightseeing coastline cruise which lasts about 1 to 1.5 hours. It's about $20 I think.  Bring a jacket though, it is cold on the water. The coastline should be pretty and they will tell you about shipwrecks there.
  • There is also a shop on the boardwalk called Eos... it is an outdoor outfitter that sells surfboards. The guys that work there are interesting to talk to as they explain the surfing culture there.
  • Sheboygan has the John Michael Kohler Art Center (free located at 608 New York Avenue) which displays folk artists' work.
    John Michael Kohler Art Museum - admission is free.
    The displays rotate so not sure what is there now, but was enjoyable to see.  (check out the men's room while there, it is the best part!)
  • Kohler Design center is nearby - which I reviewed... worth the time to visit.
  • The wreck of the Lottie Cooper is there by the marina. (free)  Though it won't take long to read about it and walk through the remains, I thought it was interesting to see.
  • The marina there is the largest fresh water charter fishing location in WI so you can watch fisherman - both commercial and sport fisherman cleaning or unloading their catches of the day in the parking lot at the fish-wash stands.
  • In the downtown area there is a restored theater .... it is now a performing arts center. Not sure if it is open for tours but it is beautiful inside.
    Weill Center for Performing Arts.
    It is called the Stefanie Weill Center and it does allow for "small" and large groups for guided tours.  826 N. 8th Street. 920-208-3243. It was built in the 1920's for Universal Pictures.
  • Sheboygan County Historical Museum is at 3110 Erie Ave and is a cluster of old buildings from the 1800's.  (920-458-1103) It's open 10-5 Mon through Fri.
  • Fountain Park (1000 N. 8th St.) has pretty fountains in it as well as a Civil War Memorial and the city bandshell. In summer there is live music performed hear free to the public.
  • Farmer's Markets are also in Fountain Park 8am to 5pm on Wednesday and Saturday though October.  (I have a Sheboygan book in front of me, that is how I know these things  :o)
  • They have a baseball team here as well... www.sheboyganbaseball.org 
  • Indian Mound Park is at 5000 S. 9th Street.  Effigy Burial Grounds are here.  The 18 open mounds contain about animal and geometric forms made by Native Americans from between 500 and 1000 A.D. They also contain artifacts and skeletal remains.
  • There are also famous golf courses here: Whistling Straits and Black Wolf Run. Club houses are both open to the public and beautiful views can be seen from them.
