    Door County, Wisconsin, United States

    Read about Door County in Midwest Living Magazine. Extended a Chicago trip to include this fabulous peninsula. Well worth the drive. Have visited three times and hope to visit again soon.

  • 2. Door County Lighthouse Inn
    Door County Lighthouse Inn, Egg Harbor

    Several lighthouses to visit on the peninsula. Don't forget to check out Cana Island lighthouse at Bailey's Harbor. Walk across a body of water to reach the lighthouse and take a tour. This is the Lake Michigan side of the peninsula - more rugged. Beautiful surrounding!

  • 3. Sturgeon Bay
    Sturgeon Bay

    Sturgeon Bay is the "door" to the upper peninsula. It's the last point for chain restaurants and shops. Don't stop there. The tranquility begins as you venture north to at least five bays and harbors, approximately ten miles apart. Unique shopping and lots of it. No restaurant chains or stores. Art and music abounds. Where else can you see well-kept apple and cherry farms, beaches, parks, lighthouses, sailboats, golf courses , an old-fashioned drive-in theatre and ice cream shop, as well as bike paths within a compact area?
