On 8-30-12 We visited the beautiful Wisconsin Harbor Town of Algoma. We were making our 2nd visit of the summer to the Manitowoc area last summer and we came here in the morning to explore before going to Green Bay for the last pre-season Packer game (next post!). We arrived at about 8:30 and left by 12:40. The visitor center is really beautiful, built into the side on a hill overlooking Lake Michigan.
On the other side of the center is a boardwalk alongside the beach. Very nice! We found out there have been settlements here for thousands of years.
We reach the end of the boardwalk and got closer to the lighthouse.
I got some good views, but found out you really need to be there in the afternoon to bring out the red color. I discovered that just before we left for Green Bay.
We went to the marina near the lighthouse and found the view I discovered on a webcam a few weeks earlier. Also discovered more signs,they taught us a lot about Algoma.
Lots to see here in Algoma.
It was just as charming downtown.
A restaurant with a model of the lighthouse outside.
We had a great time here. When we got back to the visitor’s center, I bought a 2013 calendar to remember our visit all 2013.
