The Wonders of Wisconsin

Overview

Quote:
The best thing to do in Door County is drive the peninsula. You can visit lighthouses, Washington Island and many shops and markets. All in one day if you wish.

Quick Tips:

Talk with the locals. They are incredibly friendly and willing to be your tour/shopping guide.

Best Way To Get Around:

Not a lot of public transportation but a rental car, bicycle, and even walking will get you where you want to go—there's even a trolley tour.

Down home cooking, Wisconsin style. Everything from a local "fish boil" specialty to the best pot roast in the state. Very casual with a relaxed atmosphere and great service. The employees are quite friendly and, like every local in Fish Creek, more than willing to guide you on your way to the best the peninsula has to offer.

We arrived in Fish Creek in late September. The local will tell you that the trees don't really start to change color until about mid to late October. They were wrong this time. Coming from the Phoenix, AZ area, we don't get to see the beauty of fall. Everywhere you looked there were reds and oranges and brown and greens; all making a most wonderful live painting. Even in the (brief) rain the landscape was alive with color, and serenity. Throw in an old farmer's market or two (actually, there quite a few), a winery (also quite a few) and a local fall festival, and you are back in the "old country". Wow!
