Guidebook for Two Rivers

Food Scene
Its always nice to dine at The Lighthouse Inn with the stunning views of the lake right outside the big bold windows. Casual fine dining with great seafood and salad selections [I never order steak when I go out so I can't comment on the beef but I would expect it is just as satisfying as the seafood]. We have always had good service here as well. Friendly and welcoming.

They strive for fresh wholesome ingredients. Great beverage options. My favorite wrap is the Taco Salad Wrap. It has crunched up blue corn tortilla chips rolled in and it is so delicious. I have to admit I love this wrap so much I don't think I have ever tied any of the others. It is located right in the heart of Downtown Manitowoc near WI Maritime Museum.

I had the Kickin Whisky Burger aka 1/3lb flame grilled beef with their Signature Kickin Whiskey sauce, smoky bacon, & pepperjack cheese. It was fantastic. Located on the East Twin River with outdoor seating including picnic tables near river. They have outdoor games like bean bags. Great place for families and friends. Owner was in the military and is in partnership with his uncle. Very personable.

Great place for martinis and fine dining in downtown Manitowoc. Within walking distance to the Maritime Museum. They have some incredible selections and although I don't usually order steak when I dine out, but their Sizzling Steak and Mushrooms caught my interest and it was indeed sizzling and was fantastic.

Machut's Supper Club is a classic that holds the same charms today that they did back when. I have fond memories growing up, sometimes going there for Thanksgiving or Easter and having a family style feast, or when relatives were in town maybe we would all go gather out to eat and [the adults] have cocktails. It was always a treat and we always enjoyed it, AND, all the things that I loved about it and remembered most are still there today including the aroma's of baked & fried seafood, & baked potatoes wafting out each time the kitchen doors swings open. Scott is a pleasant host and bartender and you would most likely have a very enjoyable experience and dinner.

This is the Two Rivers Visitors Center also. It was once an Opera House and the upstairs ceilings have been carefully restored and musical events have been again enjoyed up there. This unique structure will be needing some loving care so we hope you will go visit and see how cool it is and give a nice little donation if you are so inclined. The Washington House is home to Berner's Ice Cream Parlor which is known for 'inventing' the ice cream sundae. There is other rich local history on display at the Washington House plus friendly volunteers to help you get where you want to go in Two Rivers and surrounding areas. A great place to stop in.

Hamilton was a big name for Two Rivers. They did a lot to develop their industry and support this community. At one time making Wood Type Letters for printing was their specialty- , the company evolved to engineer many other things however the Wood Type has been preserved and continued as a medium through the support and development of the Hamilton Wood Type Museum.

Neshotah Park & Beach is extraordinary. It is an incredible expanse of recreational & leisure space abutting Lake Michigan. It has MANY picnic spots w/tables & grills, various playground equipment groupings for different ages, plus Volleyball/Tennis/Basketball/Horseshoes/Baseball, & Plenty of room for Frisbee. There is a Concession Stand w/Changing & Restrooms. There is also volleyball ON the beach, & a fairly new Band Shelter on the Beach. Also, there's an aromatic cedar woods w/footpaths,& natural boulders fun for kids to climb on, & an old abandoned exposed underground building which I remember finding as kids and being really intrigued. A neat natural spot for kids to be kids.

Biking into Point Beach on the Rawley Point Recreational Trail is nice, & you can get a ice cream or deep fried cheese curds at the Pavilion which sits right on the beach. You can walk for miles and miles on that beach and it is fun to do.
