SISTER BAY, WISCONSIN
This historic village with deep Scandinavian roots bustles with activity every summer. Kids splash in the bay, families explore the shops, boats launch from the marina, and goats graze on the grass roof of a Swedish restaurant. Go see the goats!
Friendly, family-owned shops offer Scandinavian imports, outdoor gear, holiday decorations, clothing, handmade goat milk soaps, and sports equipment.
Diverse restaurants, pubs, and eateries reflect the talents of local chefs, bakers, and brewmasters — many have been featured in Bon Appétit and on the Food Network.
Resorts, cottages, and hotels are sprinkled in and around the village.
