marina at Port Washington, Wisconsin
Explore our beautiful Lake Michigan lakefront! The marina is considered by most to be the best on the Western shore of Lake Michigan. The breakwater is a pedestrian friendly pier (during nice weather) that jets out into Lake Michigan to form the Northern barrier that protects the marina from the Nor’easters.

The 1930’s Art Deco lighthouse, at
the end of the breakwater, is a beacon with a foghorn to bring home the boaters.
While out on the breakwater, turn around to take into view the majestic steeples
that reign over the city landscape.
