Sheboygan County is a neat little county full of beautiful landscapes to explore. Settled right by Lake Michigan, there are state parks and many different lakes for the outdoor enthusiast to enjoy. There are also lots of different places to eat at! Although the cities and towns are filled with different experiences, it would be great if there were more things to do for kids, especially indoors. Sheboygan County overall, is safe and family-friendly. The city of Sheboygan has even been named one of the safest places to raise a family!

Sheboygan has an incredibly close-knit community while still maintaining the feel of a larger city. With a focus on the arts through the John Michael Kohler Arts Center, there's always new exhibits to see that aren't just limited to the facility walls; an art movement sponsored by the JMKAC has decorated different parts of the city with amazing street art for the past few years. However, if there's one thing I'd change about Sheboygan, it's the fact that many leisure activities simply aren't attainable unless you have money. There are a lot of accessibility issues tied in with income here, not only in terms of fun things to do, but the lack of low income housing (or truly low income housing, i.e. places that are actually affordable for people in poverty).
Living in Sheboygan County has been a great experience for me. It's a safe, calm place to live. You can take walks alone and not feel unsafe. There are good restaurants along with grocery stores. The Sheboygan Area School District is a great place to get an education, either traditional or non-traditional. There are plenty of activities for children and adults.
