Blue Harbor Resort and Conference Center - Sheboygan, Wisconsin
This year-round destination resort is one-of-a-kind. This could be because it’s one of the only resorts on the Wisconsin shores of Lake Michigan. Or it could be because of the 54,000-square-foot indoor entertainment area and waterpark. Maybe it’s because of the nautical theme that appears everywhere from the lobby to the restaurants to the waterpark to your accommodations. But we think it’s the combination of all these things that makes Blue Harbor a spectacular family resort. Walk the sandy Lake Michigan shores, enjoy splashing, soaking fun at the indoor waterpark or have a relaxing morning at Elements Spa. For great lakes dining at its finest, visit Weissgerber's Seabird Restaurant™ for seafood, steaks, wine and al fresco dining overlooking the beach.
