A strong sense of Lake Michigan’s vibrant past as a fishing and shipping hub can be found in Two Rivers. Still active as a deep-water sport fishing port, Two Rivers captures the spirit of its heritage in several museum-like attractions. It also takes pride in being the birthplace of the ice cream sundae – invented here in 1881. For a taste of that frozen treat, stop at the Washington House – part museum and part soda fountain. For outdoor relaxation and recreation, sweeping sand beaches line the city’s shoreline.
