Town to Town Tour

WHBL Town to Town Tour

WHBL is going town to town to pay tribute to the great cities in our community. Each week we'll focus on a different city culminating with a live high school football broadcast.

Featured City of The Week is Howards Grove

Howardsgrove.org describes the village as, "a quiet, safe place to live, centrally located between Green Bay and Milwaukee, providing easy access to many urban activities and amenities, yet set in a rural atmosphere. It is only minutes from the City of Sheboygan which offers many shopping opportunities, restaurants, the arts and other services. We are also located just minutes from Lakeland College, in rural Sheboygan County."

The description goes on to highlight great schools, one of the top ranked in Sheboygan Country, and beautiful parks. Banks, grocery stores, fast food, service stations, gas stations & convenience stores, home remodeling, and a seed supplier are some of the key businesses along with well-known local restaurants, taverns, and a golf course."
