EGG HARBOR, WISCONSIN
This classic DC village sits on the bay. Legend says its unusual name may be from a friendly egg battle between early fur traders as they raced to shore — or from a nest of ducks eggs found by the county’s first settler. Go swimming!
Historic buildings, such as the old town hall, drug store, and feed mill are now home to great shops — home decor, clothing and jewelry boutiques, souvenirs, confectioneries ,olive oils, galleries and books. There’s also a health food store and gourmet grocery store.
Supper clubs, pubs, and restaurants serve homemade barbecue, steak and seafood, Italian, French, Spanish tapas and more. There’s an artisan cheese shop and microbrewery.
