Sounds like a great day to just sun, play volleyball, read, or picnic on the beach. Stay safe friends. :) Timeline Photos Waves, currents could pose danger to swimmers at Lake Michigan beaches!!! The National Weather Service in Sullivan warned swimmers on Wednesday of high waves and strong currents along the shores of Lake Michigan. The most dangerous swimming conditions are expected at Vollrath Park Beach, North Side Municipal Beach and Blue Harbor Beach in Sheboygan; Upper Lake Park Beach in Port Washington, and Harrington State Park beaches. The high waves and rip currents will make swimming difficult even for a strong, experienced swimmer, the agency warns. The "beach hazards statement" is one of several new alerts provided by the weather service to warn the public of possible hazards at Lake Michigan beaches in southeast Wisconsin.

Where we offer a touch of New England charm combined with midwestern friendliness.

Explore the city's beauty and history on the shore of Lake Michigan, just 30 miles north of Milwaukee. Enjoy walking tours of the downtown historic district and harbor. You'll pass our two lighthouses; one a unique art deco design, and the other a museum. Visit specialty shops and boutiques, located in historic storefronts in our downtown district. Then dine at one of our locally owned restaurants. So many wonderful choices!

Play outside - head to the marina and venture out charter-fishing. Head inland and golf one of the great courses in the area. Bike, hike, or bird on the 37 - mile Interurban Trail. Or, hit one of our two sandy beaches, relax, and just watch the ever-changing lake. And we have great festivals and events. You could encounter pirates, sail on a tall ship, indulge in a giant fish fry, tour a garden, browse a farmers market - and those experiences are just a sample!
