Wisconsin might not be the first place you think when you think of beaches, but as we
showed you last year, there are some pretty awesome beaches here. This year, we are profiling great Wisconsin beaches once again. The list includes some past favorites as well as some new ones to check out this year.
1. Neshotah Beach (Two Rivers)
This is a beautiful 50 acre beach that is well-maintained. It's also a great place to play volleyball. You will see both amateurs and professionals.
2. Schoolhouse Beach (Washington Island)
The water here is pretty cold but it's spectacular to see the waves crashing into the shore. The rocks are smooth and the water is crystal clear.

This lake, at 146 acres, is the clearest and deepest in all of Wisconsin. It has a gorgeous beach where you can play in the sand or soak up some rays.
