    Fish tugs- the hardworking fishing boats of the Great Lakes.

    Designed to meet the requirements of a challenging environment,
    the Great Lakes fish tug is a form seen nowhere else.

    Surfs up Dude!!!

    If their skin is red,
    it's not sunburn,
    it's frostbite


    They surf until the surf board ices up and gets too slippery.

    Sheboygan hosts the annual Dairyland Surf Classic, the largest freshwater surfing competition in the world.

    The "Endless Summer" type movie called "Step into Liquid" was filmed in the Sheboygan surf

    "Sheboygan
    A grand secret on Lake Michigan's shore
    Spend some time downtown near the lake in the area called Harbor Centre.
    "Walk a few blocks south, then east on Pennsylvania Ave. and you'll be at the marina and lakefront beach area.
    There you'll also find the remains of the "Lottie Cooper," a schooner that went down in an 1894 storm.
    It was found during survey work for the marina and was reassembled and put on display,
    a memorial to lost Great Lakes seamen.

    The nearby Sheboygan River boardwalk offers many dining and shopping opportunities

    Ride south to Indian Mound Park (located on Ninth St. and Panther Ave.).
    The park is the site of 18 Native American effigy burial mounds in deer, panther, conical and linear shapes.
    If you have an interest in mounds, don't miss this site.
    If you're not an effigy buff, you'll still enjoy a pleasant, cool and quiet stroll through the park and nature trail."

    By 1875 there were 45 factories producing over 2,000,000 pounds of cheese.
    At one time there were 116 factories in the county.

    Today the number of operating factories has dwindled and the bulk of the dairy products are produced in cooperative and corporate dairies.
    A great concentration of dairying continues in Sheboygan County.
    While the number of dairy farms is decreasing, herd sizes are becoming larger.

    By 1922, more than 2,800 cheese factories existed in the state.
    Today, approximately 15,000 dairy farms, with over 1.2 million cows
    producing an average of 18,500 pounds of milk each per year, continue the reputation for quality milk from Wisconsin.
    Cheesemakers use approximately 90 percent of this milk to produce cheese at 115 plants.

    Sheboygan
    Worlds Largest Flag Pole
    Interstate 43, 5 miles south of Sheboygan
    Acuity Insurance, a Sheboygan-based insurer, raised the tallest flagpole in the United States on July 2, 2005. The steel pole is 338 feet high, 6 feet wide at the base, weighs 65 tons (without the flag), and is sunk into a 550-ton block of concrete that is 40 feet deep, 8 feet wide and reinforced by steel rods. The flag is 120 feet by 60 feet, or 7,200 square feet. Each star is 4 feet high and each stripe is 4 1/2 feet wide. It weighs 300 pounds.[6] This flag and flagpole out did an earlier Acuity record, a flag raised June 2, 2003, atop a 150 foot flagpole. The old pole toppled over due to stress and high winds, almost falling onto nearby Interstate 43. The new flagpole is designed with extra bracing and placed much farther from the highway
