Trip to Door County – The Best Weekend Trip from Middleton, WI

Recently, my girlfriend Trish and I took a trip to Door County from Middleton and it was a blast! Today, I wanted to share this trip with you.

If you’re not familiar with Door County I highly recommend you visit. It’s on the peninsula of Wisconsin near Green Bay, WI. Here is more information on the area – CLICK HERE

Below you will find photos we took while on our trip.

As you can see above, we had a really good time. (There is video of the trip too, but that’s for another day!)

Here is a snippet from the TravelWisconsin.com site:

The Door County peninsula enchants visitors with its 300 miles of shoreline, five state parks, cherry and apple orchards, and artist colonies. The narrow peninsula – only 75 miles long and 10 miles wide – provides an astonishing variety of attractions. Visit art galleries one day, spend the next hitting the golf course and use a third day to pick a delicious bucket of fresh cherries followed by a picnic on the beach.

Door County is home to the nation’s oldest professional resident summer theater company, which performs in an outdoor amphitheater in Fish Creek. Picturesque communities, including Baileys Harbor, Gills Rock and Sister Bay, offer historic points of interest that reflect the area’s Scandinavian and other original ethnic settlers. Museums showcase the county’s rich maritime history. The only state-owned golf course can be found in Ephraim. A winery in Egg Harbor uses local fruit for its wines. A ferry takes visitors to Washington Island, just off the tip of the peninsula, and to smaller Rock Island, once the private estate of a millionaire investor and now a ruggedly beautiful state park. The scenery dazzles year-round.
