Manitowoc Area Visitor & Convention Bureau

Welcome to Manitowoc and Two Rivers! The place where you can relax, refresh and "Coast For A While". The Manitowoc Area Visitor & Convention Bureau is a destination marketing organization that also operates and manages a 3000 sq. ft. Visitor Information Center (VIC). The VIC is open year round and serves thousands of travelers annually. Our 24-hour Visitor Service Center (lobby entrance) is always open. It offers free local area information, state maps, and a free courtesy telephone to our hotels and to the S. S. Badger carferry dock. Inside the VIC, we offer free local area and statewide brochures, state maps, directories and guides from a variety of destinations from around the state. Our large parking lot includes a bus and RV “pull-thru”, a picnic area, and a pet exercise trail. Our knowledgeable staff and volunteers are ready to provide suggestions on local and area travel planning to help you find your way as you visit the Port Cities of Manitowoc and Two Rivers and our great state of Wisconsin.
