Plan Your Trip

If you haven’t already applied to print with us this summer, you can still do that here!

If you do have your application in or you’re coming as a guest or printer’s helper, you can start thinking about how you’ll make your way to Manitowoc. Below are just a few notes of things to see and do made especially for those of you who’ll be driving north to reach us.

Chicago – So many museums and things to see! Windy! Art! 

Milwaukee – Check out current exhibits and the Calatrava roof at the Milwaukee Art Museum. Call ahead and plan a stop at Team Nerd Letterpress, a printshop run by N. Adam Beadel, one-time Knoxville resident as Yee-Haw Industries intern, and an excellent example of humanity. 

Sheboygan – Spend a half day in town for the John Michael Kohler Arts Center and good food at some excellent nearby restaurants.

Manitowoc – Where we print! Manitowoc is also home to a charming downtown, the Rahr West Art Museum, and the Wisconsin Maritime Museum right on the river with a submarine you can walk through and tour. Manitowoc is a short 5-minute drive from Two Rivers.

Two Rivers – Home to the Hamilton Wood Type and Printing Museum! Two Rivers is also the city where you can reserve Frank Lloyd Wright’s stillbend

Green Bay – Home to the Ries – Martins, Bay Beach Amusement Park, a football team of note, and many other fine attractions. 

Door County – Beautiful land and full of small towns that come to life in the summer with art and tourism. Take a ferry and out Washington Island and then Rock Island at the northernmost tip of the county.
