Your favorite foods may be unknown to those across the world, but local businesses in Door and Kewaunee counties are willing to help with an introduction to the region's newest visitors. Cruise ships will be a common occurrence in Algoma this summer, as will be the mobile visitor center that is stationed near the city marina. All visitors will be given maps of the area with all the restaurants and bars in town, so they won’t be going hungry while exploring. Elizabeth and Bill are two of the passengers aboard the Viking Polaris cruise ship that stopped in Algoma on June 16th. Visiting from Australia, Bill claims to have never had cheese curds or an old-fashioned, a classic pair for those who live or frequently visit Wisconsin. Although the couple has been to America before, they have never been to a city like Algoma. Bill looks forward to the food, the walkability of the town, and meeting new people.
You have another chance to welcome some new faces to Algoma on June 20th when the cruise ship Hanseatic pays the city a visit at 8:00 a.m. It is carrying close to 300 passengers and crew members from Germany, Japan, the United Kingdom, Italy, and more.
