Visitors with just one day to see Kohler could start their exploration with breakfast or Sunday brunch at The American Club's historic Wisconsin Room, which once served as mess hall for Kohler company workers. Then stroll around the Kohler grounds, taking in the former company housing that makes up this 1912 planned community. Be sure to note the rich flora around the grounds that helped the village achieve official botanic garden status in 2004. Take a peak into the factory: Free three-hour tours are offered there, but leave time for the free-admission Kohler Design Center across the street, too. The museum-like space boasts three stories of displays that feature cutting edge kitchen, bathroom and home design from throughout Kohler's history, as well as the latest technologies in the works. Top your evening off with a long, relaxing multi-course dinner - jacket required - at the Immigrant Restaurant inside The American Club, where local artisanal and ingredients are the stars of the show.
To start off your day in Kohler, enjoy breakfast in The Wisconsin Room. Take the shuttle to Whistling Straits to play the Straits Course and enjoy lunch on the veranda. Take the shuttle to Kohler Waters Spa and enjoy a Riverbath with Massage. Grab a cup of coffee from the Greenhouse to refresh for dinner. Dine in the Immigrant Room and finish the evening with a glass of wine from the Winery Bar.
