Summer in Door County.....is there anything better?  A green peninsula (that's a car ride from several major metropolitan areas) surrounded by water, with boating, fishing, sailing, swimming, hiking, biking, picnics in the sun, fantastic food, fantastic art opportunities from galleries to concerts (mostly free!) to theater...superb food and wine, homemade ICE CREAM, lighthouses, counting the stars at night, sunsets over the Bay, sunrises over the Lake.....

And I'm just touching the surface!  Summer in Door County is the stuff memories are made of....and that is why people keep coming back, and why vacationers turn into seasonal or year-round residents.

Door County is a year-round destination.  From late April through early November, we are BUSY.  And then we are busy during the holiday season.  If we have snow (we did not this winter of 2024, but now that it's spring...we have snow in the forecast) we are even quite busy in January, February and March with cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, ice fishing, ice sailing, ice skating...Door County is know for the arts, for silent sports, for all things water-related, for great food and fantastic beverages (from wine bars to breweries to old-fashioned shakes and malts) and SO much more.
