Site Seeing in Manitowoc:

The Wisconsin Maritime Museum is a treat - beautifully built and well maintained. You can visit the USS Cobia - a submarine that was in service during WWII and is an example of the more than 100 submarines built in Manitowoc during the war.

Largest Waterpark in the US:

Noah's Ark has been a fantastic waterpark for many years.  It continues to provide hours of fun, is extremely well maintained and it well worth your time if you visit Wisconsin. The Dells (the area that the park is in) provides some great other options from jet boards to "the Ducks" ride to horseback riding.  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.

Amazing Cheese!:

Ehlenbach's Cheese Chalet is the real deal. Coming from someone who was called the "Cheese Wiz" as a kid, I would know.  Great service, amazing cheese (A cheddar aged 15 years on site and available for tasting) and some good homemade candy as well.  The will shrink wrap and ship your cheese for a small cost!
