Port Washington Tourism
Port Washington, with its touch of New England charm, is nestled on the Wisconsin shore of Lake Michigan, just north of Milwaukee. Whether this is your first visit, or you are returning to a favorite harbor town, we invite you to take some time to see all we have to offer.

One of the first things you'll see, coming down the hill to the lake, is the art deco lighthouse. Whether you are boating, fishing, walking on the beach or in any of the lakeside parks, this iconic symbol of the community keeps watch at the end of a half-mile long pier.

Our downtown is lakeside, and offers unique local shopping and dining destinations - all housed in historic storefronts. Explore the history, and our stories, by following a self-guided walking tour, as well as visiting our museums. The 1860 Light Station Museum shares the stories of a lighthouse keeper in the 19th century. The Port Exploreum uses 21st century technology to engage you in local and maritime history, as well as the ecology of Lake Michigan.

The outdoor recreational opportunities are exceptional. The fishing is unsurpassed. Boaters love our certified Clean Marina. Bike, bird, run, or hike on our trails. Paddlesport enthusiasts, even surfers, love launching from our South Beach.

Plan your Lake Michigan vacation with our visitor's resource guide for hotels, bed and breakfasts, shopping, events, farmers markets, lakefront festivals, and more. Once you are here, make sure to stop by the historic Pebble House Visitor Center for more information. And don't forget your camera!
