5 Great Ways to Enjoy Door County’s Season of Blossoms
- Sit on the shoreline. Before the harbors fill and the beaches grow busy, spring presents a special opportunity to admire the county’s most beautiful spots when you can have them to yourself, hearing only the wind in the trees and the lake rolling gently to the shore.
- Run in the park. If you love to run, do yourself a favor and plan to hit one of the trails of Newport, Potawatomi, or Peninsula State Park in early to mid-May. Weave through the woods as the forest bed comes alive with blossoms and the trees explode into green.
- Find a guide. Check the events calendar for guided hikes at The Ridges Sanctuary, Crossroads at Big Creek, The Clearing, or the state parks. You’ll be escorted to special views with experts who know the history of the locations and the blossoms you’re enjoying. The Door County Festival of Nature is a great time to find dozens of educational opportunities.
- Trolley Time! The Door County Trolley offers great spring trolley tours all over the peninsula where you can hop between great restaurants, local wineries and breweries, and meet new like-minded friends as your driver shows you the way.
- Your own soundtrack. Take a long drive up and down the rural countryside of the county, turn up your favorite music, and enjoy. You’ll see row after row of apple and cherry trees, wildflowers taking over fields, and gardens beginning to sprout.
