Enjoy a Day on the Sandy Beaches of Algoma
Green Bay is a wonderful town to visit in Northern Wisconsin. As Wisconsin’s oldest settlement, and with plenty to do and see in Green Bay, it has become a popular weekend getaway destination for many. But for many, Green Bay is also a stopping off point along the way, as they explore the quiet and beautiful reaches of shoreline that extend beyond this historic town. One such place to explore along the quiet shores of Lake Michigan is the sleepy little town of Algoma. Make us your home base during your trip to Green Bay this spring, and enjoy the quiet exploration of Wisconsin’s most beautiful region.

Outdoor Recreational opportunities abound, with Lake Butte des Morts to the north, the Fox River and Lake Winnebago nearby, and of course expansive Lake Michigan in our backyard. If you’ve ever wanted to try your hand at fishing Wisconsin waters, there couldn’t be a better place than Algoma. This sleepy little town is known as the salmon and trout capital of the Midwest, and is home to a strong fishing industry.
Lighthouse lovers won’t want to miss a stop at the photogenic steel tower lighthouse, before heading on to the quaint shops of downtown Algoma. Don’t miss the Flying Pig Gallery & Greenspace, where you’ll find a unique shopping experience set amidst a beautiful garden.
