Defined by its five miles of Lake Michigan coastline, Two Rivers is the perfect place to work and play. Adventure is always calling with miles upon miles of bike and hiking trails, a shipwreck trail, and even a trail of art gems you’d never expect to find, which makes the area slogan “coast for a while” a perfect fit. Lake Michigan provides options for boating and fishing and ice activities in the wintertime. Those looking for shopping, dining, museums and historical landmarks can visit the downtown area. The city is connected to Manitowoc, WI by the seven-mile Mariners Trail that parallels the Lake Michigan shoreline the two cities share.
