Defined to the east by our beautiful Lake Michigan coastline and carved to the west by the rolling hills, woods and marshes of the Kettle Moraine, Sheboygan County offers beauty and bounty wherever you look. Our small historic towns offer plentiful shopping, meticulously restored neighborhoods and a rich variety of cultural festivals. You will feel as though you have traveled back in time. Sheboygan is the county’s largest city with 50,000 people—still small enough to feel at home, yet large enough to offer sophisticated art experiences and a host of outdoor sports, from surfing and kite boarding to cycling and softball…and much more.
