Destination guide

Welcome to the Cheese Capital of the World

Set along the Mullet River in the heart of eastern Wisconsin, Plymouth has earned its dairy-centric nickname thanks to the four major cheese producing brands that call the town home. With a historic downtown and countless public parks, visitors get a taste of easy small town living. A Plymouth vacation rental puts you in the middle of a fascinating landscape formed by the glaciers of ages past, with plenty of hiking and biking trails for soaking up mother nature. From local festivals to rolling forests, Plymouth has something for everyone.

Things to do

In a land where cheese is king

Did someone say cheese? Plymouth has plenty of it to go around, from downtown murals of the stuff and the New Year's Eve Cheese Drop at the Plymouth Arts Center, to Antoinette, the 20-foot dairy cow statue that's a beloved local landmark. If you need a break from all that dairy, try some golf - Blackwolf Run and Whistling Straits are just 2 of the renowned courses in the area. For killer views of the surrounding glacial landscape, head to Marsh Tower on the Sheboygan River, or Parell Tower in Kettle Moraine State Forest. For prime fall leaf peeping, the Kettle Moraine Scenic Drive is a must.

Activities

Small town charm meets rugged landscapes

There's always something going on in Plymouth's historic downtown, be it free concerts, seasonal festivals, or the country fair. The best way to find out what's on tap today is on an organized walking tour. The 17 city parks offer every activity you could want, from swimming to frisbee golf, and there are more than 39 miles of off-street bike trails in the area. Head to Kettle Moraine State Forest or Old Plank Road Trail for some mountain biking and hiking (upgrade to a snowmobile in winter). If you still have energy, check out the top-notch golf courses or motorsports tracks.

Weather

Bundle up for those (in)famous Midwestern winters

Winter is the real deal in the Midwest, and Wisconsin in so exception. From November to March, the low temps usually dip below freezing (even into the single digits) and you'll see plenty of snow. If you're planning on a winter Plymouth vacation rental, be sure to pack your heaviest coats and boots. Better yet, find one with a fireplace for some quality cuddling time as the flakes fall outside. From June to August you'll generally have highs hovering near 80. Spring and fall can be wildly unpredictable, though October comes with an impressive display of fiery fall foliage.

Natural features

Walk in the footsteps of glaciers

Formed eons ago by slow-moving glaciers, the landscape around Plymouth is noted for its rolling hills, lakes, grasslands, and unique rock formations. The best examples can be found in Kettle Moraine State Forest. A Plymouth vacation rental will also put you near the 14,000 acres of marshes and wetlands of the Sheboygan Marsh Wildlife Area, home of the largest restored wetland in the region. If the scattering of small lakes throughout the region aren't enough water for you, you can reach vast Lake Michigan in under half an hour.
