Food & Activities:
Lunch in Manitowoc - Beerntsen's
Opened in 1932, this little hand-made candy shop turned into quite the hot spot over the years. From handmade candies, chocolate, and deluxe creamy ice cream to homemade sandwiches and soups, there is something here for everyone. Sweet tooth or lunch destination, Beerntsens is a great choice.
Sightseeing in Manitowoc - The Wisconsin Maritime Museum
This Museum is beautifully built and well maintained. You can visit several submarines including the USS Cobia, which was in service during WWII. This is an example of the more than 100 submarines built in Manitowoc during the war. You can go to the museum’s rooftop bar Tuesday-Thursday 5-9 pm, celebrate Subfest in July, join the Cobia overnight program, or rent out public/private events.
The Largest Waterpark in the Us & the Wisconsin Dells
Noah's Ark has been a fantastic waterpark for many years. It continues to provide hours of fun, is extremely well maintained and is well worth your time if you visit Wisconsin. The waterpark has everything to keep your family entertained: mini-golf, waterslides (thrill rides, group rides, and gentle rides), surfing, wave pools, the adventure river, and plenty of kid-friendly areas — not to mention a 4-D dive-in theater. Hungry? There are 10+ places to get food, beverages, and treats! Don’t forget to pick up a souvenir on the way out.
The Wisconsin Dells (the area that the waterpark is in) provides some great options from jet boards, zip-lining, rope courses, and the ducks boat tours — to a beautiful horseback ride. There is an eatery called Paul Bunyon's that we visited as a child — we didn't make it this trip, but I remember it fondly from my youth. Paul Bunyons has hearty and delicious breakfast, lunch, and dinner options. Don’t forget to check out their gift shop when you head out!
Ehlenbach's Cheese Chalet is the real deal. Coming from someone who was called the "Cheese Wiz" as a kid, I would know. Not only do they have great service, but every single type of cheese imaginable — spicy cheese? They have that, too. Sausage and salami to go with your cheese? You know it. Not to mention they have a cheddar aged 15 years on-site and available for tasting. They have some good homemade candy as well. Intrigued? They will shrink wrap and ship your cheese for a small cost, even if you can’t make it in!
