Summertime is time for fun right here

WITH MEMORIAL DAY BEHIND us and the official first day of summer only a few weeks away, it’s time to start thinking about summer fun.

Maybe it’s because the summers are shorter here than they are in sunny southern climes, but Sheboygan County seems to find a way to keep every summer weekend – and the weekdays (and nights) in between – packed with fun and interesting things to see and do.

Whether it’s arts festivals, firemen’s picnics, shows and entertainment, or just the natural scenic beauty and outdoor activities that stretch from Lake Michigan to the Kettle Moraine to the Sheboygan Marsh, there’s no lack of things to do to keep summer days and nights full.

Much of it, of course, is designed for or aimed at the visitors and tourists who come here during the summer, but as tourism officials here and elsewhere have always told us, it’s also possible – and fun – to be a tourist in your own backyard. And there’s no backyard better for that than Sheboygan County.

Many people, no matter where they live, will travel all over to see sights and events without ever taking in what’s right in their own hometown – and that’s certainly true in Sheboygan County.

The whirl of summer activities has begun here and there’s plenty out there for everyone to keep busy this summer.

There’s the usual array of festivals and picnics, in just about every town, village and city across the county, big or small, on just about every weekend.

Whether it’s music, food, games, bargain shopping – or all of the above – you’re looking for, you’re sure to find it somewhere in Sheboygan County any and every weekend for the next three months.

We’re also blessed, of course, with an abundance of natural splendor for those who want to enjoy the world around them. From the Lake Michigan shore to the rolling foothills of the Kettle Moraine, the call of nature is easily answered anywhere in Sheboygan County. Whether you enjoy a quiet hike in the woods, splashing in refreshing lake water, throwing a line in clear blue waters to catch some good-sized fish or just taking in the scenery, opportunities abound.

For those with an artistic or entertainment bent, there’s plenty of art and shows throughout the summer as well, whether it’s the Gallery 110 North shows or the Mill Street Guild’s “Mill Street Live” shows at the Plymouth Arts Center, the always-popular Summer Concerts in City Park series (including the annual German Night), or lively shows and live music at the resorts and bars in Plymouth and Elkhart Lake, great art and great entertainment is never too far away.

There are also sports and recreational activities galore throughout the city and county, whether your interest is in participating or just watching. You can swing a golf club on our many championship-caliber golf courses – or several par- 3 courses if your game is on a less professional level. You can watch world-class auto racing of many varieties at Elkhart Lake’s Road America or enjoy local drivers going wheel-to-wheel in the weekly Plymouth Dirt Track racing events at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth.

It all adds up to the usual blend of summer fun and activity Sheboygan County offers each and every year, with truly something for everybody right here at home. Go out and enjoy!
