Light up the night with excitement
 
However you prefer to light up the night, you’ll find plenty of nightlife options in Door County. Enjoy a late night meal at a cozy restaurant or pub, check out a local band at the corner tavern, sit back for a night at the theater, catch a flick at one of Wisconsin’s last surviving drive-in theaters, throw down a blanket for a concert in the park, or blend in at one of the many street festivals and events held year-round.
