Letter to the Editor: Don’t Forget Sturgeon Bay

I hope everyone who found our paradise enjoyed Door County this past July 4. If you weren’t able to spend as much time as you wanted in all the beautiful, welcoming towns, we hope you will come back. 

With that in mind, think of the City of Sturgeon Bay. We know you are aware of it. We saw you pass by on your way north. You may have missed a magical place.

On Wednesday nights, there are free, live concerts at Martin Park, and on Saturdays, there are movies.

On weekends, enjoy music, pizza at Sonny’s and very cold craft beer at Bridge Up Brewing on the working waterfront, or across the canal, you can catch another band at Stone Harbor. Don’t forget these venues include free viewing spaces, but why would you want to miss out on the nachos? 

For outdoor dining, there’s Kitty O’Reilly’s. Down the street is the best prime-rib sandwich at Greystone Castle. Head a little east, and sit outside at Leathem Smith on the ship canal, and check out its happy hour’s beer. Continue east and a little south to the White Birch Inn’s amazing food and view.

Looking for clean food? Head on over to Get Real Cafe. The charity brat fry on Thursdays at Marchant’s is so good. Let’s not forget Nightingale’s amazing prime-rib dinner and The Mill’s broasted chicken. Both famous Sturgeon Bay supper clubs serve frozen brandy Alexanders.

Want Mexican? Visit Old Mexico for tableside guacamole. In the mood for fried chicken to go? Visit Econofoods. Want sandwiches and health food? Try Healthy Way Market. Next visit the shops on 4th Avenue and places to eat: oh, my – the famous Red Room, the Inn at Cedar Crossing, the Door County Fire Company, the Gnoshery, the Bricklot and many more.

But wait – there’s so much more! You get the point.
