We had a blast visiting Door County, Wisconsin. We stopped at a Tourist information spot near Green Bay and got lots of information -places to eat, sights to see. The lady and man working the tourist place both had visited the area several times. From cheese stores to orchards to wineries- lots of places to stop in and taste the... More

This is a wonderful place for young city born children. They were able to feed goats with a bottle. Cows ate corn from their hand. They were able to cuddle baby chicks and kittens. We bought large pumpkins for $1.50 each. Also there were old buildings showing how the pioneers produced things like honey and maple syrup. We took a... More

We just came back from the Door County, Wisconsin area. Starting in Sturgeon Bay and going the length of the Peninsula over 10 days was a trip to remember. The history of the area is intriguing and very interesting. We kayaked. zip lined, rented bikes and boats and took numerous walks around the various towns and historic sites. We climbed... More

GREAT place to spend a long weekend, quit relaxing. Do a fish boil and visit one of the local pubs/breweries and wineries. Ephragm is a great little town. Try Wilsons, the food is expensive for what it is. The ambiance is 1950's soda shop. It is nice and has great food. Rent a boat a have a great week end.

Romantic sunsets, fine and casual dining with many cuisine options, countless wineries, state parks and endless recreational opportunities! Ephraim is home to the most beautiful sunsets and Wilson's ice cream parlor, a Door County tradition! Anderson Dock is a place to literally... More

We—mom, dad, and two kids--came here first in 1982. Wondering now why we waited so long to return! Spent a wonderful week in Door County the last week of July celebrating our 50th Wedding Anniversary with those same two kids plus their families and friends of ours. Rented a beach house on Lake Michigan, just north of Jacksonport on the... More

A visit to the Door County Peninsula is worth your time. Starting at Sturgeon Bay, you can see the Canal Light House and North Pierhead Light. The lights can be seen by following Canal Drive to the end from Highway 42/57. Two completely different lights. You can not go up in either, but interesting to see the difference. Travel up... More
