As a near native of northern Door County WI, this is one of my favorite locations in all of the US. My mother grew up here, so almost all of our vacations while I grew up were spent here. Although it has become a major tourist attraction in the northern US, it can still be seen in its native beauty... More

I had my very first Fish Boil dinner at the Old Post Office in Ephraim, WI, and did some shopping in Fish Creek. I have always loved visiting Door County, and this was another great time!

I liked a lot about Door County and some not so much. Loved Rowley's resort and liked some of the parks. It's a hike, although beautiful one from Minneapolis if your willing to get off the highway and zen navigate on the way. My first thoughts after looking through all the books and maps of Door County was that the... More

If you are looking for a fun place to go antiquing or for fall fun, try Door County, Wisconsin. Also, go to Washington Island at the northernmost top of Door County while you're there. Put your car on the ferry and see all the sights. I especially loved seeing the Stave Church there.

Last year our family vacationed in Martha's Vineyard, which was an absolutely awesome trip - though difficult to get to from our Chicago base, and the island was troublesome to navigate without a car. Our visit to Door County this summer actually felt very New England-like, and had everything (except lobsters and ocean) that we had last year, minus the... More

I felt it was time to return to Door County after not being there for many years. My husband and I always enjoyed our trips to Door County, but he had been ill for many years and the trip would have been too hard on him. We were avid golfers and really enjoyed the many courses that Door County has... More
