More About
Sheboygan, WI

About SheboyganAlthough the sound of nearby falls on the Sheboygan River may have inspired a Native American term (Shawb-wa-way-going—“rumbling underground”) for this location, the town means sausage and cheese to many people because of its industries. In addition to its savories, it produces and distributes steel, furniture, plastic products and in nearby Kohler, plumbing products.

The area's top-rated courses attract golfers as well as professional golf tournaments, and for fans of motorcycle and auto racing, Road America in nearby Elkhart Lake offers thrills for racing fans mid-May to mid-September; phone (920) 892-4576 or (800) 365-7223. Kids can play in an indoor tree house, activate characters in a miniature circus and create metal sculptures using a giant horseshoe magnet table at downtown's Above & Beyond Children's Museum, 902 N. 8th St.; phone (920) 458-4263.

Scenic drives along the lakeshore include Broughton Drive, Lakeshore Drive, and North 3rd Street. The Kettle Moraine State Forest also provides scenic views for drivers. Located on the shore of Lake Michigan, the city offers outstanding waterfront activities, including boating and fishing; other recreational pastimes are available at nearby Kohler-Andrae State Park.
