Things to Do

Do you live for adventure or relaxation when you’re on vacation? Have it both ways in Manitowoc! If you like to take things slow, feel the sand in your toes as you lay on one of our four public beaches or sip and sit back at Waterfront Wine Bar or The Wharf Manitowoc where you have a great view of the glimmering Manitowoc River. For a more upscale relaxation experience, try a spa day at one of our many spas and let the massage therapists work any leftover stress out of your system.

For those who live to explore, Manitowoc’s Ice Age Trail segment through Schuette Park offers a challenging hike or rent kayaks and paddleboards from the Manitowoc Marina to explore the waterways. You can even tour the downtown on wheels aboard one of Manitowoc’s new pedal taverns - Manitowoc Tavern on Wheels and Manitour Pedalers.
