Praised by travel writers and visitors from around the world, Wisconsin's Door County is often referred to as the Cape Cod of the Midwest.
With five state parks, eleven lighthouses and 300 miles of shoreline, this 70-mile long sliver of land that juts out into Lake Michigan combines pristine scenery with acclaimed performing arts, renowned galleries and shops, and pampering accommodations. Small wonder it was named one of the top ten vacation destinations in North America by Money Magazine and that each year more than 2 million visitors claim this jewel as their own.
Pack your Door County itinerary full! Hunt for treasures in one-of-a-kind shops, galleries, museums & lighthouses. Pick a pail of ripe Door County cherries in July, or a basket of crunchy apples in September. Take in one of the colorful weekend festivals that take place in communities throughout the peninsula and on Washington Island throughout the year. Make an evening of it by dining at one of our award-winning restaurants (perhaps taking in a traditional Door County Fish Boil) and attending one of our acclaimed music or performing arts shows.
But be sure to save time to enjoy the tranquility offered by less energetic pursuits. Stroll along the scenic shorelines or take a sunset cruise along the shore and make lasting memories with someone special. Let thousands of acres of nature preserves and parks fill you with their peaceful sounds, sights and smells as you explore quiet paths.
