Atwater Park & Beach
See Lake Michigan the way you have never seen it before at Atwater Park & Beach. This gem is a well-kept secret of Shorewood locals, giving you a unique opportunity to take in nature without encountering tourists. Enjoy five acres of land at this park as you stroll across the shore. Hidden at the bottom of a cliff that you can only access by descending a staircase, you are really in for a treat here. Bask in the breathtaking views as you work on your tan, play with your kids, or run with your dog.
Plein Air Shorewood
Get ready for a celebration of all things art at Plein Air Shorewood, the annual local painting festival. This event gives local artists a chance to paint with their artistic brethren in the great outdoors while basking in the beautiful sites of Shorewood. Daily events feature meals for the artists as well as entertainment, which culminate in an auction of the work created in the festival. There are also awards for best in show, along with other prizes, for the artists that participated. So, dust off those old paintbrushes, collect your art supplies, and head to Plein Air Shorewood.
If you want to know where the locals go to hang out and unwind, head to Camp Bar. Part nightlife spot and part casual eatery, the atmosphere here is fantastic. Feel like you are out in the wilderness in their joint, with the building designed to look like a cabin. From their delicious old fashioneds to their superb BLTs, Camp Bar has something that everyone will enjoy. The place also features big screen television sets, making it the perfect option to watch the local game. Patrons love coming back to their friendly staff and general homey atmosphere, and you will, too.
