Manitowoc is easy to access via I-43, U.S. 10, U.S. 151, or Highway 42. Follow Waldo Blvd. or U.S. 151 from I-43 to get to the downtown and lakefront areas, and be ready for a fantastic time! Don’t forget to pick up some candy and sweets at Beerntsen’s on 8th Street while you’re there (it’s a State Trunk Tour favorite) and explore Manitowoc’s two craft breweries, PetSkull Brewing downtown and Sabbatical Brewing Company on the west side of town!
