Take me to the lake.
Whether a vigorous hike over challenging terrain or a casual stroll on a nature trail, there’s nothing like the lush beauty of Sheboygan’s parks and beaches.
Known as the “Fresh Water Surf Capital of the World,” Sheboygan juts out five miles into the lake, and when winds of 20-25 mph blow from the northeast or west southwest, incredible waves are sculpted from the surface water.
One of the best ways to get on the water is SUP, or standup paddle boarding. You can paddle any waterway with these in different conditions – inland flat water, rivers, surf and even yoga.
Just one of the many ships that are said to be at the bottom of the lake near Sheboygan, the Lottie Cooper was discovered during the construction of the marina and she has been re-assembled at Deland Park, right along the Lakefront.
Centuries of exploration, travel, commerce, and recreation on the Great Lakes have left an impressive trail of maritime cultural resources along Wisconsin’s Great Lakes shorelines.
