Some of my favorite places include Washington Island, Peninsula State Park, and any one of Door County’s many ice cream, custard, or gelato places.
Washington Island is an incredible Island which is about a 30 minute boat ride on the passenger ferry from Gills Rock. Washington Island has many restaurants and several hotels and campgrounds if you’re looking to spend the night. The best part of Washington Island is Schoolhouse beach. Schoolhouse beach is a geological masterpiece and is one of the world’s only smooth limestone beaches. Along with the being a beautiful place, the deep waters makes it a great place for divers. There’s even a diving raft which is a really fun place for kids because they can jump off of it. Normally, I get to go to Washington Island a couple times a year and I always enjoy it. In all, Washington Island is an amazing summer place that has fun for the whole family.
Peninsula State Park is another great place that blossoms in summer. From hiking and biking the trails, to kayaking to horseshoe island or sitting back and taking in an original show at Northern Sky Theater, there are many ways to enjoy the Park in the summer. There are many great trails in Peninsula State Park. One of my personal favorites is Sunset Trail because it is great for bike riding. Along with being a wonderful sand beach, Nicolet Beach is nice because of all of the activities available for rental including; stand up paddleboards, kayaks, and water bikes which are really fun. Along with those activities Nicolet beach has some of the best soft serve ice cream, you have to try it. Nicolet Beach and Peninsula State Park offers everyone in the family some fun.
