36 Hours in Wisconsin's Winter Wonderland
You wake up with the morning snow gently falling outside. It’s the weekend …
Door County’s quiet season is the perfect time for a getaway to play on the snow and ice or cozy up by the fire. Explore acclaimed restaurants, wineries, breweries and shops and reconnect with nature and yourself.
Winter’s chill doesn’t stop locals from taking advantage of the beautiful winter landscape and trails in area state parks and preserves. Go snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, ice fishing, or ice skating, then stop at the coffee shop or tavern for a warm-up!
Before hitting the trails and exploring, don’t forget to gear up at one of these Door County locations!
