• Door County has recently been named in TripAdvisor’s “Top 10 Fall Foliage Destinations” list.
TripAdvisor, one of the world’s largest travel website, compiled the list through a user survey of more than 2,300 travelers. Door County came in at number seven on the list of top U.S. fall travel destinations, with Peninsula State Park specifically referenced for exceptional hiking and biking.
Door County was the only Wisconsin destination to be included on the list; other U.S. destinations included locations in New England, the Smokey Mountains, and Michigan.
“This sort of national recognition can bring an enormous amount of positive awareness to our destination,” said Jack Moneypenny, CEO of the Door County Visitor Bureau (DCVB). “It helps us on many levels and ties in well with our own initiatives to promote Door County as a top fall travel destination, not only in the Midwest, but nationally, too.”
The DCVB recently updated their website’s home page on http://www.DoorCounty.com to include a special fall color report that features an up-to-date fall color tracker complete with a color coded map. The DCVB also works with the Wisconsin Department of Tourism to maintain Door County’s status on the weekly fall color report featured on http://www.TravelWisconsin.com.
