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 Sheboygan

VisitSheboygan.com provides this description, "known as “the spirit on the lake,” the City of Sheboygan rests on the Lake Michigan shores about halfway along the state’s eastern seaboard on Interstate 43. Sheboygan is just 55 miles north of Milwaukee, 60 miles south of Green Bay, 110 miles northeast of Madison, 140 miles north of Chicago and 340 miles from Minneapolis.

Our beaches are brighter. Our fish are bigger. Our golf is better. Our food is the best! And it’s fun to say our name. Try it…go ahead…She-boy-gan. How do you Sheboygan? We surf, kite surf, wind surf, sail, kayak, jet ski, boat, fish, bike, hike, climb, race, golf, eat, drink, dance, relax, spa, enjoy. And we fry brats! We are the Bratwurst Capital of the World, after all. So come Sheboygan with us!
