Plymouth

Plymouth’s historic downtown is a treasure of antique shops, fine dining, and quality accommodations. The Plymouth Center houses the city’s performing and visual arts center, while the Plymouth Historical Museum features exhibits of the city’s storied past. Plymouth is also one of four trailheads on the county’s exceptional Old Plank Road Trail.

Don't leave without tasting...

Plymouth is known as the "Cheese Capitol of the World"! We are home to four cheese-packaging manufacturers (most well known is Sargento Foods), plus Sartori Company, which manufactures artisan Italian cheeses. Don't leave Plymouth without tasting Sartori's "Bellavitano" or "MonteAmore" cheeses; if your tastes lean more to the traditional cheeses, make sure to stop at any of our grocery stores or Plymouth Wine and Cheese to pick up the best cheddar, colby or string cheese Wisconsin has to offer!

Classic scenic drive.

Plymouth has the good fortune of being situated on the northernmost point of the Northern Kettle Moraine State Forest. While the drives are scenic any time of the year, you definitely want to spend some time taking in the autumn colors on one or more of the "Fall Foliage" driving tour routes in Western Sheboygan County. Our colors typically begin in late September and peak in mid-October. While there are maps available for the more well-known scenic road routes, the best way to see the leaves is to "wander" the country roads through the Forest.

Small town charm

One of Plymouth's best features is its small-town quaintness. Established in the late 1800s, downtown Plymouth is filled with historic charm, great shopping and delectable dining. Be sure to pick up a Visitor Guide containing the downtown "Mural Map" so that you can take in the 24 murals that depict Plymouth's rich business history. Walk along the Mullet River, take a trip back in time at the Museum or spend an afternoon at Gallery 110 North in the Plymouth Arts Center.

Top photo opportunity is...

Have your picture taken with Antoinette, our fiberglass cow, standing 20 feet high and weighing 1,000 pounds. Antoinette was erected during Plymouth's 1977 centennial celebration and commemorates Plymouth's ties to the cheese industry. Plymouth is home to four cheese-processing companies (Sargento Foods is headquartered here) and Sartori Foods, an award-winning manufacturer of artisan Italian cheeses.

Must see attractions.

Plymouth is your MURAL destination! In June 2011, 160 artists from around the world (known as "Walldogs") came to Plymouth for four days and left behind 21 beautiful murals depicting Plymouth's rich business history. Bright, colorful and detailed, the murals grace a number of buildings on Mill Street; several of the murals are on buildings just to the north or south of Mill Street. With a mural added in the summer of 2012, Plymouth now has 24 murals total. Bring your camera - taking pictures of your favorite mural(s) is not a problem!
