A Wonderful Place to Head for History Fans

Door County has some magical historical attractions, including a cluster of 19th century lighthouses, the 1850s architecture of Ephraim, and the engaging Historical Museum.

A Superb Place for Nature Lovers

Door County's natural beauty is its main attraction. It's on full display at Peninsular State Park, the beaches of Washington Island, and the dramatic limestone bluffs which line the coast.

Door County is named after Pont-des-Morts ("Death's Door"), the strait between the peninsular and Washington Island, which itself took its name from Native American tales, not the dangers posed to shipping by the local rocks.

Top 5 Things to Do in Door County

1. Visit Washington Island

Located just off the tip of Door County, Washington Island is a great place to try a fish boil, buy a handmade quilt at the Sievers School of Fiber Arts, or explore the island via UTV with the Island Adventure Company.

2. See Wisconsin's Oldest Lighthouses

Take the short ferry ride to Rock Island which is even less spoiled than Washington Island. It's home to an elegant 1850s lighthouse and a just-as-beautiful boathouse built by millionaire Chester Thordarson in 1929.

4. Watch a Packers Game

Green Bay might not be in Door County, but it's right next 'door', meaning that football fans can mix up fall breaks with tickets to Lambeau Field.

5. Visit the Area's Belgian Chapels

Door County's 19th century Belgian arrivals built some truly exquisite chapels along the peninsular. These tiny Catholic shrines are almost unique in the USA, and well worth touring by car.
