Not just for those interested in toilets. The basement is the history of the Kohler Company and bathrooms in general (you'll find your old avocado green sink there). The main floor is a lot of individual pieces and a wall of toilets. The top floor is designed kitchens and bathrooms. Really is interesting, trust me! And if you don't like it, you didn't lose much, since its free to get in.
I have been on other factory tours, but I think this was the best. You are actually walking around on the factory floor. You get so see porcelain pieces being formed and glazed. You get to see the brass components being dipped in acid baths. You get to see molten cast iron being poured into molds (maybe the coolest part). And you may even be able to see an artist at work. How much does it cost for this few-hour tour? Nothing!
The kohler design center is a 3 story building housing every type of kohler product needed. They show you different colors and styles. There are even design specialists who can help you design you new magnificent bathroom and any other room you want.

Take a tour of the Kohler factory. The factory is unbelievable -- the tour lasts a few hours and shows you how everything is made. My favorite was the bathtubs. They showed us how they even put on the non-slip material. The tour is very comprehensive and worth going for!

Designed by Pete Dye, this course will be the host of the 2004 PGA Championship. The course is built on the shores of Lake Michigan and is spectacular. Even if you are not a golfer, at least check out the Clubhouse and see the clover shaped 18th green. Also check out the sheep on the course.
The course looks very difficult, but if you play from the proper tees, it is playable. Wide fairways and the greens are excellant.
Whistling Straits is a fun place to golf. Bunkers everywhere (some 400-500 on the course) and stunning views across the landscape. It is as good as they say it is.
Designed by Pete Dye - this course is tough! But it is so beautiful, you won't care how bad you are shooting!!
