Location
The Manitowoc/Two Rivers area is less than 40 miles southeast of Green Bay and approximately 80 miles north of Milwaukee, both readily accessible via Interstate 43. The state capital, Madison, is 125 miles to the southwest. Appleton, Fond du Lac, and Oshkosh lie along Lake Winnebago to the west.

The Manitowoc River flows roughly eastward, however meandering its direction south and north and sometimes even doubling back westward, finally rolling into Lake Michigan's western shore. Not far to the north, the East Twin and West Twin rivers flow more directly southwestward and come together just before they disappear into Lake Michigan.

The historic Manitowoc/Two Rivers area is not only accessible by highway, you'll find excellent bus service, rail service and numerous freight carriers. Michigan is just a comfortable ferry trip away, across Lake Michigan. The S.S. Badger carferry makes the trip between Manitowoc and Ludington, Michigan.

Manitowoc County Airport offers two paved, lighted runways, with international service available in Green Bay, just 45 minutes away, or in Milwaukee, 90 minutes from Manitowoc/Two Rivers.

We think you'll find us in just the right location!
