5 Types of Door County
Bachelor & Bachelorette Parties
Although there’s an endless number of ways to throw a Door County bachelor/ette bash, we’ve compiled this list of five atypical, off-center party types to inspire you as you plan your trip. And don’t forget to keep track of all your trip and activity ideas using the Trip Planner tool.
For Spirited Brides & Grooms
While, yes, some good-natured drinking is a staple for many bachelor and bachelorette parties, our local spirit-makers also offer facility tours, special events, live music, outdoor spaces for socializing and playing games while enjoying beverages.
You may also consider hitting up a beer or wine festival in early summer, following the Door County “wine trail,” or hunkering down at one of many local pubs and taverns that sling locally sourced beers, wines, and cocktails.
For the Sporty Spices
Door County has dozens of golf courses, hiking trails, beaches, parks, and waterways, plus tons of local companies that can provide fishing charters and fishing equipment, motor-boat rentals, kayaks and canoes, stand-up paddle boards, scuba gear, bike rentals, and more.
For the View Junkies
Imagine ferrying across Death’s Door to Washington Island, kayaking between the region’s numerous smaller islands, hiking wooded trails and taking in sweeping views from lookout towers, renting scuba equipment and checking out Great Lakes shipwrecks, experiencing a scenic boat tour, or exploring five pristine state parks.
You’ll find more natural attractions along the county’s famously scenic shorelines and bluffs than you could possibly see in a single trip, so you might also consider picking a few in close proximity and exploring a nearby town or two.
For Those Who Seek the Good Life
Start with dinner and drinks at a local mainstay, followed by a show, concert, or performance and a Door County-style craft cocktail for a nightcap. Round out the rest of your bachelor/ette trip with visits to spas and salons, museums, local landmarks, specialty shops, and spots peddling higher-end drinks and fine wines. Our top-notch galleries, theater groups, fine dining restaurants, supper clubs, and wine experiences are as vibrant and innovative as you’ll find anywhere in the Midwest.
For Fans of the Weird & Wonderful
Start by exploring the area’s iconic attractions, such as lighthouses, fish boils, and architecture and landmarks. Or, if you’re seeking the true oddball soul of the county, take things a step further and explore these uniquely beautiful natural wonders or these one-of-a-kind events, festivals, and local traditions.
