Outdoor Fun:
AhnapeeStateTrailFrom hiking to biking to horseback riding, you’ll find miles of scenic trails over at the Ahnapee Trail.  For the more adventurous, check out Winter Park trail for a mountain bike trail with a “fantastic single track that balances climbs and descents almost perfectly.”  There are also four county golf courses for those who travel with their clubs.

Kewaunee-FishingAnd of course, lest you forget these towns sit directly on the shores of Lake Michigan, there are plenty of charter fishing opportunities from the “most productive salmon fishing harbors in the country.”   For those who enjoy water sports of a self-propelled variety, be sure to try canoeing on the Kewaunee River or sea-kayaking along the Lake Michigan shore.

Don’t Miss:

Finally, end your day with “a fine meal, fine wine and fine jazz at the Kewaunee Inn” or watch the “sunset over town from out on the pier at the lighthouse”.
