I go there whenever I can when am in Wisconsin and last August was no exception. My daughter and I headed out of Milwaukee around 7:30, caught I-43 north and drove the familiar route along Lake Michigan to exit at Hwy 23 east. A few of the sights have changed as the old Ponderosa/Sizzler is now Luigi's Italian Restaurant, but there were no issues finding out way around this quaint lakeside town.
Breakfast was the first stop and we were delighted with our choice of Field to Fork Cafe. Located in the heart of downtown on 8th Street, this restaurant and small grocery store satisfied our hunger. I chose the biscuits and gravy, while Ashley had the frittata. The biscuits were outstanding and, although the frittata did not look like a typical frittata, the flavor was delectable.
After breakfast, we drove past where my parents attended school. Central High School, I was happy to discover, is now in service as a charter school. The building looked better than ever and I was pleased the halls were alive again with students.
Next stop, the Lakefront, one of my favorite stops in Wisconsin. I hope the pictures speak for themselves. Gorgeous serenity.
We were at the lake shore at approximately 10 a.m. Yet there were extra stops to make including the cemeteries. Sheboygan, Wisconsin is much more than one imagines when hearing those two words. Stay tuned. Plenty more to come.
