A Classic Weekend Getaway in Wisconsin
With dozens of lakeside communities, 300 miles of lighthouse-dotted shoreline, thousands of acres of wooded greenspace, a vibrant dining and bar scene, and countless coves and harbors to explore, there are so many ways to do Door County. The region’s small-town charisma, maritime history, and seaside charms have earned it the epithet of “the Cape Cod of the Midwest,” an honor we’re proud to boast (even if we like to think of Cape Cod as the Door County of the Northeast).
