Wisconsin's Maritime Capitol

Manitowoc, known as Wisconsin’s Maritime Capitol, is truly a waterfront treasure. Located on the western shore of Lake Michigan, Manitowoc features a varied heritage of agriculture, shipbuilding and maritime attractions as well as the natural beauty of forests, lakes and beautiful beaches. Explore specialty shopping, Victorian mansions and a historical village. On a clear crisp winter night, some claim to be able to see the lights of Ludington, the “sister” carferry port, across the 66-mile-wide expanse of Lake Michigan.
