Harbors, Bays and Shores, Oh My!

The Peninsula of Door County, Wisconsin is more than just parks. Instead of hitting the trails we got lots of steps in wandering the sidewalks of all the quaint little towns. Here's a list of our favorite stops along the way.















Bailey's Harbor-for a beer and lots of cheer. Door County Brewing Company has a new building with lots of charm. We joined a table with two seniors of UW. We enjoyed a tasting flight and some delicious Truffle and Parmesean Fries form the Chives food truck while we assisted them in a game of Cribbage.







Fish Creek-for frozen custard and Ducks. A short stop for an afternoon cone at Not Licked Yet. We rested at the creekside chairs and enjoyed the ducks.












Sister Bay- for goats and goat cheese. The famous rooftop goats on Al Johnson's Swedish Restaurant are always fun to see. Another stop when in Wisconsin is for the local cheese. Door County Creamery had lots of tasting items and we left with some fresh Chevre with smoked Whitefish.













Egg Harbor-pottery and art along the way. Plum Bottom Pottery is just one of the unique countryside stops for inspiring art. Another stop was for a sculpture garden at the Edgewood Orchard Galleries. Just to name a few. We even had a chance to stop at the Peninsula School of Art for the Plein Air exhibit.











Sturgeon Bay-ships and shipbuilding are everywhere. Stop at the Door County Maritime Museum for a history lesson. Who knew a state in the Midwest built so many ships, even submarines. When you look at a map you'll see why, we connect to the St. Lawrence Seaway.













Ephraim-a tour of The Clearing. Established by Jens Jensen a famous landscape architect. On weekends they have a free walking tour of the folk school campus and we gained a new appreciation for his legacy.










Along the Way
Can't miss the cherries of Door County. Lots of Wineries too!
