Every summer I go to Door County Wis. with my family. There are so many things to do it is hard to choose even if you have been there before. That is always our problem every year, we try cherry-picking our activities and run out of time to do everything. Time flies fast when you’re at the Door Peninsula, you don’t want an opportunity to close just because you didn’t have time to do it.
A good idea is to plan ahead and research activities that fit with your personality. Whether you’re an athlete, an artist, a nature-lover, a spender, or a foodie: or who knows, a little of them all, there are things for everyone to do.
Door County offers kayaking, biking, and golfing for those who like to get out and go. Athletes need to get the ball rolling quickly if they want to accomplish this hat trick. Lakeshore Adventures kayaking tours offer many different kinds of tours: shipwrecks, caves, bluffs, and eco tours. It’s all up to you to decide which one floats your boat. Next you’ll want to put the pedal to the metal and rent a bike from Nor Door Sports. From there you can ride on different trails around the area including Peninsula State Park. You will make a hole in one if you can fit a trip to one of the many golf courses in Door County.
And for all those nature-lovers out there who don’t want to beat around the bush in town. Peninsula State Park offers camping, hiking, and bike trails. If you want some good-natured family fun you can head over to Whitefish Dunes and Cave Point; where you can see amazing bluffs and caves created by Lake Michigan.
If nature isn’t for you check out at some of the many great stores in Door County. There are two main hubs for shopping the first is in Egg Harbor and the second is in Fish Creek: both have stores for all ages and interests.
If you’re an artist and want to brush up on some new techniques or just want to have fun creating your own work stop by at the hands on art studio. If creating art is not your forte there are many talented artists with art galleries in Door County that you can visit and buy from.
And last but not least if you are a foodie and live by the wall of your stomach, Door County is the place for you. There are so many great restaurants it is hard to choose. We always have out favorites that are a must when we go. If you want a place that is family friendly and will keep your kids on track I recommend PC Junction. If you want pizza The Wild Tomato is a slice of heaven. For a light meal the Summer Kitchen is by far the best place to go. And if it gets your goat when you can’t get breakfast all day then stop by Al Johnsons for some Swedish pancakes.
On your last night Fred and Fuzzy’s at sundown is the cherry margarita on top to end a great vacation in Door County.
