Known as a "hub city" for the hub and spokes factory built in 1867, and for its central location between Milwaukee and Green Bay, Plymouth is both charming and beautiful. It is nestled in the gently rolling hills of the Kettle Moraine State Forest, which also makes Plymouth an ideal place to rest, relax, and rejuvenate, while experiencing our unique, historic town.
On your leisurely stroll through Plymouth's downtown, you can tantalize your taste buds with local culinary flavors. You'll be intrigued by the captivating architecture and beautiful artwork found in several quaint pubs, shops and contemporary galleries. If fresh air and warm sun on your face while bicycling or boating sounds appealing, you'll find the trails and lakes in and surrounding Plymouth to be lush and refreshing. Select one of our day trips below, or create your own- whatever you decide, come, unwind, relax, and experience our diverse community.
"Grab the Kids" Weekend
Bring the family to Plymouth! The Plymouth Aquatic Center (outdoors) has something for all ages. The zero entry end of the pool is perfect for non-swimmers; young children will enjoy the lily pads and sprinkle stations; swimmers will love the water slide! You can mountain bike and/or hike in the Kettle Moraine State Forest. The Old Plank Road Trail is 17.5 miles of paved pathway, running east to west from Greenbush to Sheboygan, and allows for all modes of non-motorized transportation. Head north to the Sheboygan Marsh and climb the 80-ft wooden Marsh Tower (the tallest wooden tower in Wisconsin).
History & Antique Lovers Getaway
Spend some time in Plymouth's historic downtown. Antiques, books, vintage clothing, jewelry, art and Parisian-inspired gifts are among the items in our downtown specialty stores. History buffs will love the historic walking tour and the Walldogs murals. Visit the Plymouth Historical Museum, with numerous displays of local history. Head north and make a stop at Henschel's Indian Museum and learn about the area's Native American history. Wade House Historic Site in Greenbush celebrates the world of plank road stagecoach travel in the mid-19th century and features an inn and Wisconsin's largest collection of restored carriages and wagons.

"Down to Earth" Weekend
Plymouth offers visitors the opportunity to enjoy the four season. Our park system includes the Outdoor Aquatic Center, summer concerts at the bandshell at City Park, Frisbee golf, baseball and soccer fields, tennis and volleyball courts, downhill skiing and ice skating. Grab your fishing pole and head for one of our many inland lakes, or stop in at one of the area trout ponds to feed the fish. Golf one of the area courses, or take an afternoon to enjoy some minigolf or batting practice.
"Ditch the Kids" Weekend
Sometimes it's nice to indulge yourself in quality adult time without the kids. Bring your spouse or significant other, or make it a girls-only weekend. Plymouth has a variety of lodging and dining options, suitable for whatever you're looking for. Spend the day at a spa, or stop for a quick manicure or pedicure. Take in a concert or a play, or shop our variety of businesses for that one-of-a-kind gift. Wander through a garden center oasis or watch the sun set over a lake. You'll return home refreshed, with great memories, and hopefully with a few new treasures!
