The Place to Play in Door County

Egg Harbor is a small town with coastal charm that has been named one of the best small towns in America—and for good reason. Nestled on the Green Bay side of the peninsula and tucked away among verdant orchards, nature preserves, and farmlands, Egg Harbor has a sparkling new marina and waterfront that serve as gateways to aquatic adventures. 

In town, the foliage-lined main street is home to specialty shops, bakeries, and restaurants serving modern cuisine, craft cocktails, and fine-dining fare as well as easy-going bar food and Door County classics. Parks, art galleries, and golf courses also await—all within harbor's view.
