Far & Wide:

Port Washington stands out from Wisconsin's many, many lake towns for its unique opportunity to shipwreck dive in Lake Michigan. This alone makes it worth a visit — if you're not scared of diving in cold water or seeing shipwrecks.

The town also has a pretty beach and plenty of water activities besides diving.

Located just north of Milwaukee, those activities in Port Washington include trips to parks like Possibility Playground and Coal Dock. There's also a very popular lighthouse in Port Washington called the 1860 Light Station.

When it comes to eats, Twisted Willow, Dockside Deli, and Daily Baking Company are all top choices according to TripAdvisor.

There are also some really great places to stay in Port Washington right now if you and the entire family or multiple groups or families want to shack up for a few days.

Home rental prices range anywhere from just under $200 a night up to a whopping $736 for this newly constructed lake house on VRBO.
