Places Welcoming You

Drive 47.3  miles • 1 hour, 14 minutes

Known as the “Midwest’s Cape Cod,” Door County sits in a scenic peninsula surrounded by Lake Michigan. Like its New England counterpart, this vacation spot has great food, interesting culture and festivals galore.




1. Egg Harbor

Starting Point • Food, History, Nature, Outdoor Recreation

While visiting Egg Harbor, take in the scenery of Green Bay’s sparkling waters while driving along Door County’s Coastal Byway. But don’t just look at the water—bring your boat to the state-of-the-art Marina, or hit the shore for some of the best sandy beaches in the country. Beautiful scenery also abides in town, where lovingly restored historical buildings house trendy boutiques and galleries. Go from quaint to creepy by going on the town’s famous Haunted Pub Crawl.


2. Sturgeon Bay

32.4 miles, 48 minutes • Food, History, Sports

Sturgeon Bay preserves its past at Heritage Village at Big Creek, a living history attraction that features costumed interpreters who reenact the lives of Door County’s early settlers. Libation history is made at the town’s breweries, distilleries and wineries, where cutting-edge flavors are on offer for adventurous customers. Enjoy Renards Cheese for a trip into dairy Nirvana. Work off those calories out in the open and opt for golf, zip lin-ing, Segway tours and more.



3. Brussels

14.9 miles, 26 minutes • Food, History, Outdoor Recreation

Founded in 1858, Brussels is home to the largest settlement of Belgian immigrants in the United States. The local community celebrates its pride in the mother country every July during Belgian Days, featuring Belgian pies, Belgian trippe, Belgian jutt, booyah and burgers. Other events include a youth baseball tournament and a co-ed volleyball competition. If football is what you crave, drive 26 miles south for a Packers game in Green Bay.
