The photogenic red steel lighthouse adds to the scenic beauty to be enjoyed on the "quiet side". Located a mere 30 minutes from Green Bay, Algoma offers a historic downtown with quaint gift shops, art galleries and delicious eateries. Thirteen wall murals re-create long past advertisements on vintage brick buildings and are easily found using Main Street's Walking Tour Guide. The local award-winning winery is a trip worth making for wine tasting, gift shopping and the summer series entertainment. Algoma's Shanty Days festival, Car Show, Wet Whistle Wine Fest and Soar on the Shore kite event showcase the community each summer and fall. The Ahnapee Trail is available year around for hiking, biking, horse riding and snowmobiling and reaches into Brown and Door Counties. Specialty foods are processed at a food incubator. Fresh and smoked fish are sold at the local fish market. Take the short drive North of Algoma to enjoy a cheese factory, farm market and cherry processer. A truly complete Algoma visit would include a Lake Michigan fishing trip. Charter captains are experts in sports fishing out of one of the top ports on the Great Lakes. Algoma's piers offer another location for fishing brown trout, salmon and steelhead. Several municipal marinas' offer dockage for charter, seasonal and transient boaters along with boat launches and fish cleaning facilities. The Algoma Visitor Center is located on Highway 42.
