On the Wisconsin shores of Lake Michigan sits the charming town of Kohler, home to the famed bath and kitchen company and its acclaimed Five-Star resort, The American Club. Created in 1912 as a planned community for the famillies who worked at the Kohler factory, this company town has grown to become a getaway destination for those looking for world-class golf, spa and shopping (you can explore the massive Kohler Design Center, and see products from the brand and its affiliates, including Baker furniture and Ann Sacks tile). Though spring and summer are the busiest times to visit this town of 1,900, events from ice carving competitions in winter to food and wine festivals in the fall keep the town's two hotels (besides The American Club, Kohler also runs the Inn on Woodlake, a more casual offering) full year round.
