Wisconsin Harbor Towns – Lake Michigan

Wisconsin Harbor Towns – Lake Michigan

It’s the sixth largest lake in the world and there are over 500 hundred miles of shoreline to explore in Wisconsin. From scuba diving and charter fishing to sandy beaches and visiting the historic lighthouses that helped guide ships ashore, there’s plenty to see and do on the lake. Plus quite a few harbor towns call the coast of Lake Michigan home, each one offering something special.

    The Wisconsin Clean Marina Program provides guidance and education that enable marina and boatyard operators to protect the resources that sustain their livelihood — clean water, clean air, and healthy fish and wildlife communities. These natural assets are essential features of the boating industry. After all, many boaters are drawn to the water by nature’s glory. Boaters want to ply clean waters, catch and eat healthy fish and enjoy water sports without fear of water-borne diseases.
