Traveling to the great north to visit the Marinette Campus? Make sure you check out these local gems!
Being on Lake Michigan always affords us plenty to do! Try your hand at fishing or kayak at sunrise. You might even spot our Campus Executive Officer, Cindy Bailey, out on the water! Dare to take a dip? Catch us in the summertime to take in the crisp, cool water.
Speaking of water activities, Marinette County is the waterfall capital of Wisconsin! Fifteen waterfalls are spread throughout the county on hikes of various difficulty levels. Make a day trip of it or camp in the parks!
The Brothers Three
There are plenty of great eats in Marinette, but The Brothers Three definitely stands out. They’ve been cranking our award-winning pizzas since 1972 – and their recipe has never changed! Pizza not your jam? Stop in for their Friday Fish Frys or Sundays and Mondays for 40 cent wings. Yum!
Also known as Fat Ladies Park, Tourist Park is just a hop, skip, and jump into Upper Michigan. Relax on the beautiful sandy shores or take a walk to the lighthouse. The lighthouse was built in 1877 and still shines today! Stop in for their open hours to take a tour.
Great Lakes Memorial Marina Park
While you’re on the northern side of the Wisconsin/Michigan border, swing by the Great Lakes Memorial Marina Park for some summer fun! Besides the marina itself, enjoy auto shows and Thursday night summer concerts. When there isn’t an event at this park, bring a blanket for a picnic or a book to read.
There’s so much more to the Marinette Campus than just academics; we’re intertwined with the surrounding community. We can’t wait to have you visit and see what we’re all about!
