Two Rivers – Wisconsin Harbor Town

Many visits

We really enjoy traveling by the shores of Lake Michigan in Wisconsin, and visiting the towns and cities that are located along it.  Seven miles north of Manitowoc is Two Rivers, a town with an active, vibrant community.  We have made several visits there, all in the summer.  The town has much to offer.  Rogers Street Fishing Village is very picturesque, especially when sunset approaches.  They charge a small admission to go within the building and structures, that’s to maintain it.

Two Rivers is also known for inventing the ice cream sundae. You can get one at The Washington House downtown.  Historic artifacts are kept in this building. But first, lets get some ice cream!

Red Bank Coffee is another popular place to relax.  Schroeder’s Department Store is in the same historic building.  We had dinner at Kurtz’s Pub and Deli in 2014. They have been open since 1904, 110 years. Now the third-generation is giving Two Rivers a place to unwind.

We were back on August 19, 2016 and enjoyed lunch at a new restaurant called Schwarz’s Pub and Grill.  It’s a former band, the vault is now used to store wine!

It’s also fun to go to the boat launch area. To the left is the Coast Guard station. We saw a boat full of scuba divers come back to port after a day of diving.

We also happened to be there during their Cool City Classic Car Show at the end of June.  325 cars were on display. Their media happened to get a pic of me in center of pic below.  Here are just a few of the cool cars there.

Two Rivers also has a Municipal Band that performs in the summer. We watched them on August 7, 2014. You can too!

Lastly, we will visit Rawley Point Lighthouse about 7 miles north of Two Rivers in the Point Beach State Forest. It was so beautiful!
