With over 300 miles of scenic shoreline dotted with bustling harbors and quiet coves, Wisconsin’s Door County Peninsula offers a wealth of water-based recreation. Sailing, cruising, canoeing and kayaking — with your own craft, rentals or charters — are just a few of the ways to enjoy the sparkling waters of Green Bay and Lake Michigan. More than 30 sandy beaches, scenic water cruises and a car ferry to Washington Island are a few more.
Throughout a dozen quaint harbor-side towns and the pastoral interior of the county, quality art galleries and studios reflect Door County’s deserved reputation for culture in the country. The peninsula’s rich performing arts scene — from classical and jazz music to renowned theater troupes — garners national attention.
You don’t have to be a history buff to enjoy the living legacy of Door County with its fascinating museums and 10 historic lighthouses. Summer fun can be even more rewarding if you participate in a class in the arts or humanities.
Five state parks and eighteen county parks offer some of the best hiking and biking opportunities to be found in the Midwest. Eleven golf courses, horseback riding, great fishing, cherry orchards and scores of festivals are complemented by picturesque sunsets, memorable restaurants and pampering accommodations.
