For the Kids

Stay: When traveling with children, staying at Blue Harbor Resort & Spa is a no-brainer. Kids will love the KidAquarium or Boathouse Suites and, of course, they’ll love the Breaker Bay Waterpark and new Rip Tide Surf Simulator too! For mom and dad, Blue Harbor offers spa treatments, spectacular dining, a casual bar with a view of Lake Michigan, and fire pits on the beach – can you say relaxing!

Explore: Take the morning to relax before planning a day at Bookworm Gardens. This enchanted masterpiece of imagination is worth the wait. Gracing the gardens is a life-size Hansel and Gretel house nestled in a forest setting among other over-sized playhouses and exhibits built for an interactive, engaging experience. Throughout the grounds you’ll find inspiring nooks and crannies hiding your favorite childhood stories.

Dine: The Highland House is always bright, sunny and cheerful! This beach-themed gem boasts tons of seating indoors and out, upstairs and down! You’re always on vacation at the Highland House, so relax with one of their signature margaritas while the kids stay occupied with table activities.

Eat: Fountain Park‘s menu is so expansive, there’s nary an old-fashioned diner dish you won’t find listed. From all-day breakfast and daily specials to meatloaf, egg salad, chicken strips, salads, soup, fish, pastas, Mexican fare, chicken, steaks, sandwiches and burgers. If your kids are picky eaters, they’ll find something here with no complaints any time of day and so will you!

Discover: After breakfast, head over to The GameBoard and see what they’re playing! At The GameBoard, you’ll find a large selection of classical, collectible, fantasy, educational and party games. If outdoor fun is the idea, Quarry Beach is a family-friendly water park that offers a wider variety of activities for the whole family. It’s an open-play water park with both shallow and deep water activities that are challenging and fun for all ages. There’s plenty of beach area for sunbathing, volleyball, sandcastles or just relaxing. Next, stop at Above & Beyond Children’s Museum for the little ones, where kids are allowed to touch everything! They can climb a two-story tree house, move through the suspended sky crawl, land in the Music Mezzanine to play the Whompamaphone; then head off to play with any number of interactive exhibits. It’s fun, safe and, don’t tell them, but they just might learn something!

At the John Michael Kohler Arts Center there’s always something interesting for kids to explore or create. More than likely, most kids will find the washrooms the best part. Yes – the restrooms at JMKAC are famous! Be sure to check the ARTery for a chance to create art and memories with your children.

Dine: Luigi’s Italian Restaurant specializes in cuisines with a distinctive Italian taste. From pizza to dinner, you will want to have more!

Play: Spend the day on South Pier. Take the kiddos to Harbor Pointe Minigolf – your handicap won’t help you in this game! Enjoy the beautiful scenery of the Sheboygan River while you battle through a kaleidoscope of obstacles. Next, wander across the street to Spaceport Sheboygan, home to the Great Lakes Aerospace Science and Education Center. Spaceport Sheboygan is a place where kids of all ages are welcome to explore interact exhibits, programs and events. Learn to land a space shuttle on a simulator or discover the secrets of space at one of their out-of-this-world events.

Snack: Cool off, reminisce away the afternoon and treat the family at South Pier Ice Cream Parlor, with classic fountain soda or homemade fudge. South Pier Parlor offers patio seating along the breezy riverfront.
