With its serene atmosphere and changing seasons, Door County has become a popular location for destination weddings.

“There’s no business like show business!” “Two planks, a board, and a passion!” “The show must go on!” No other art form has traditions like those of the theatre. The stories are legion of how, in the midst of impossible conditions, the curtain always goes up. Actors tease that if they don’t show up for […]
As the days get longer and warmer the county comes to life. Grass is growing, flowers are blooming, tree buds are bursting open, and people are getting their yards and flowerbeds ready to plant.

But in the last half of the 19th century, they came not to appreciate and relax, but to chop and clear the area’s towering virgin forests. When Door County was established by the […]
There are many fine dining options in Door County, a handful of which have been good enough to draw attention to their chefs and menus from south of the Bayview and Michigan Street bridges and beyond. A couple of those restaurants have even combined their exquisite menus with limited views of the waters surrounding the […]
Beautiful golf courses are a part of Door County’s landscape. There are 153 holes to be played at any given time during the season with more being built all the time and, on a good day, there are people playing on most of them. Golf has become a huge business since Tiger took center stage […]
Sailboat racing has brought friends and families together off the shores of the Door Peninsula for nearly a century.
