Sheboygan Things to Do

  • 4th of July in Sheboygan

    I think Sheboygan is probably one of the best placed to spend Independence Day (at least for its size/location). There are a huge number of things going on during the day. The evening of July 3rd starts the festivities with a Venetian Boat parade where people decorate their boats with lights and parade down the river. On the 4th the 'Big Bang...

    Great arts center. Check my travelogue for more pictures. Check out the galleries. Enjoy the courtyard. Take in a theater show. Grab a latte. Make sure you go to the bathroom while there (or look at the washroom pictures on their site). Best thing is it's free to get in!

    And it's not Marcel Duchamp!The Kohler Arts Center commissioned a well-known ceramicist (I don't have his name with me right now) to design and execute the public restrooms at their Sheboygan facility. It's very appropriate for them to do so, as their Kohler family made their bundle selling porcelain bathroom fixtures across America. I didn't get a...

Sheboygan Restaurants

  • Old Fashioned Ice Cream Parlor

    This reminds me of an old fashioned ice cream parlor. So much character inside the building. Quite a big selection too of ice cream, sundaes, smoothies, coffee & soda drinks. All of it!

    more
  • Coffee on the Riverfront

    The best thing about the coffee shop is the location. Its located right on the riverfront and has seating outside right along the river. The whole cafe has a nautical theme. I have never had more than bakery there, but the coffee is good. Any of their coffee drinks are good.

    more
  • Good Food & Scenic River Views

    We happened on the Bistro seeking a lift dinner. Their varied menu gave us plenty of options. The Honey Chicken Salad was perfect for me & my husband enjoyed the Brats. Good service. Spacious restaurant with good river views.

    more
  • Good Burgers!

    We stopped here because we had such a good lunch at their sister restaurant the "Field to Fork". The burgers were meaty and done to our liking. The pub food sounded really good but we were ready for some hearty burgers. Staff is well trained! Friendly and welcoming. The restaurant is on Sheboygan River across from the Blue Harbor Resort. Burgers!

  • The Best Lunch!!!

    We stopped in due to a Tripadvisor listing and were extremely pleased. A well done cafe and market. Really good choices for lunch. My husband had the smoked trout special which included the fish on a huge pita, salad and cup of soup. Their salads are delicious and all with locally grown ingredients. Our waiter was fantastic! So energetic and...

  • Urban Sheboygan

    Good soup!Sophisticated, worldly bistro and bar at the north end of Sheboygan's famed 8th Street. Internet access and good coffee during the day, then transitioning to more elaborate menu options at night. Occasional live music as well.

  • Now Closed

    This is the gem no one seems to have discovered yet. As someone that lived in China, I've gotten very picky about Asian/American restaurants, but this one is great! - I guess no one really did discover it. In less than 6 months it went out of business :( My favorite item is the bubble tea. Their egg rolls are great, and cheap enough that when I...

    more
  • Coffee & Sandwiches

    This coffee shop has a great atmosphere, a large space full of couches and bicycles. There is a sandwich menu too with gourmet breads and piles of veggies on the sandwiches. Very comfortable to spend a long time in. Check out the bulk foods store in the back, or come during a concert.

  • Chic stylish eating

    If you are looking for a lite mid-day meal in Sheboygan, the ArtCafe at the Kohler arts center is a good choice. They have a very good selection of tasty unusual soups and salads and pitas.

  • Brats....

    I read about this restaurant, so I stopped in. I went to the one on Greele. It's a small place, with a counter. Ordered a single brat sandwich. She asked if I want anything on it. I didn't want to offend by saying ketchup, so said nothing, The waitress said, you want butter on it, right?". I said 'yes'.Tasty. not in casing, so it's less fatty than...

  • Regional/natural restaurant & market

    I love the idea of this place: a small restaurant and market emphasizing local foods grown naturally or organically from small nearby producers, emphasing quality and freshness. They have a deli counter downstairs, a decent small market, a bakery with breads and sweets, a selection of interesting wines and beers - and a full service restaurant...

  • Say hello to Mama D!

    Wonderful food - our favorite was the pecan crusted walleye! Appetizers were great, service was wonderful. If you're lucky enough to meet her, be sure to say hello to Mama D - a waitress and bartender with a true gift for making you feel like you're home! Pecan Crusted Walleye - perfectly prepared!

Sheboygan Off The Beaten Path

  • World's Tallest Symbol of Freedom

    Acuity insurance company just put up America's tallest flagpole. At 400' tall, it can be seen from most of the Sheboygan area. I was a bit skeptical, but I can see it every day blowing in the wind and it is absolutely beautiful.It is right next to the highway, so if you're ever driving past Sheboygan, you're bound to see it.

  • Tellen Woodland Sculptures

    This is really off the beaten path. It seemed hardly anyone could tell me where to find this place. The only reason I knew anything about it was because of a VT tip and not even the website for the garden gave directions on how to get there. (Take county EE east until it ends, then turn south and go one mile along the lake on Evergreen Rd, it is...

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The Sheboygan River makes a big bend as it approaches Lake Michigan. Close to the downtown area, the river is lined with warehouses that have been converted into galleries and restaurants. Many Sheboygians use this stretch of the river as a safe place for their pleasure craft.
