Kewaunee was one of the harbor towns we briefly visited on the way to Door County.  This area has been settled for a very long time. It was first discovered in 1634 by Jean Nicolet, a French explorer.  Then it was a Potawatomi village. Now its a town of just under 3000 people with many amenities and attractions for visitors and residents alike. It’s 30 miles south of Door County.

We spent about 1/2 hour there that Friday  morning. We stopped at Harbor Park. The Tug Ludington is docked in this park and is available for tours. In mid-July Trout Fest is held in this park.

We stopped at a small Farmers Market near the trailhead before continuing on to Door County.
