Unique & Unusual Trips

Discover the Unexpected & the Extraordinary

Door County is a place like no other. Although thousands of visitors take to the peninsula and islands each year, no two experiences are alike. That’s due, in part, to an effortless balance between the best of the old and the best of the new. But the unique nature of each trip is also due to Door County’s fascinating history, wonderfully left-of-center cultural traditions, nautically inspired architecture, unusually friendly and authentic people, and of course its show-stopping scenery.
