Port Washington is along the western shoreline of Lake Michigan with easy access to Interstate 43, half an hour north of Milwaukee; half an hour south of Kohler/Sheboygan, and half an hour east of West Bend. Our friendly, picturesque, small town atmosphere beloved by natives and visitors alike is well known for its tradition of charter fishing and for its annual Fish Day Festival (3rd Saturday of July each year). 

Experience  Lake Michigan v
iews that will satisfy the artist, the photographer, and the dreamer in you.  Examples of photography of two of our guests enhance this page.  Tom Krekelberg kindly shared the anchor photo on this page of Port Washington aglow at dusk.

We are grateful to Daniel Moy for allowing us to share the gallery of images of Port Washington he captured during a recent visit (more to come)!

Port Washington celebrates its maritime heritage with extensive access to Lake Michigan: the marina, Upper and Lower Lake Parks, Rotary Park, Coal Dock Park, and South Beach. Port Washington Historical Society contributions include, but are not limited to: Port Exploreum, The 1860 Light Station, and Resource Center.    

Port Washington's location mid-point on the Ozaukee Interurban Trail makes it a favorite location for exploring Ozaukee County via the bike trail..  Bikes can be rented from Zu Zu Pedals on Franklin Street.   

The topography of this 'little city of seven hills' adds to its charm; PWI'S location atop Sweetcake Hill allows views of Port Washington's harbor and Lake Michigan four blocks downhill.  Public stairs up and down the hills offer pedestrians an alternative to sidewalks.
