There’s Plenty to Love about a Door County Winter

by Cambria Mueller and Jen Rogers, Door County Visitor Bureau

With the busy season coming to an end and life slowing down a bit, have you thought about your winter plans? Whether you’re a local who embraces the Door County winter or someone who visits only occasionally, there are plenty of activities to keep you feeling warm and cozy all winter long. Visit to find a list of events and activities, as well as the snow-condition report for cross-country skiing and snowmobiling throughout the county.

Door County Visitor Bureau (DCVB) staff members, along with community coordinators from Sturgeon Bay and Baileys Harbor, attended the Nov. 16-17 Star-Tribune Vacation Travel Experience in Minneapolis. Attendees were able to “picture themselves in Door County” through a selfie station and sign up for our monthly newsletter for a chance to win a Door County getaway. We enjoyed talking to attendees about their love of Door County and helping people who were familiar with the destination but had never visited to plan a future trip.

Looking for the perfect holiday present? Give the gift of Door County! Door County gift certificates can be used at a number of places, and all of the money stays in the county. We encourage county businesses to accept them whether they are DCVB members or not. Gift certificates are redeemed at 100 percent face value, so businesses can give change back to a customer. Last year, more than $350,000 worth of gift certificates were sold. To purchase one, visit us in person at the Door County Welcome Center or online at
