Trip to Door County

Last weekend, I dove into the shark tank that is a tourist town on a holiday weekend, Door County, Wisconsin. Such towns include Egg Harbor, Sister Bay, and Bailey’s Harbor. Quiet and quaint in the spring and fall, these towns swarm with tourists and locals in the summer season. Parking spaces are hard to find, and the air smells of cookouts, sweet corn, and salt water. Here’s a little bit from my little trip.

Here’s a little map to get you acquainted:

We drove from Green Bay, only about a half hour from Sturgeon Bay.

We took a detour from Green Bay to Door County in Algoma, to peek at the pink lighthouse, and get some sand in our toes.

Welcome to the beach!

Egg Harbor has a gorgeous little harbor with those little telescopes you put a quarter in so you can see the sailboats on the horizon. I recommend stopping in the local organic grocery store, Greens and Grains, and have lunch at Shipwrecked.

I loved the look of this building in Egg Harbor.

Hello! If this doesn’t make you want to eat BBQ, I don’t know what will.

Stop in Fish Creek to visit the boutique “Brilliant Stranger” for one of a kind hand made clothes and accessories, and grab a coffee at Luna, right next door.

One of my favorite T-Shirts we saw at Brilliant Stranger.

Right across the street from Luna is the adorable Door County Confectionary.

I love this “Love” blanket I saw at Luna.  After leaving Fish Creek, we decided to drive up the coast for a bit, soaking up the sights, and driving with the windows down. We turned around to try to find some dinner on the way back.

With the night winding down, it was time to grab some dinner! Yelp is a great app to find out where to eat based on budget, reviews, and menu, depending on what you’re in the mood for. There’s a place in Sister Bay called Al Johnson’s that has goats on the roof that got rave reviews for breakfast, by the way. Oddly enough, I just wanted to go home and order a pizza, so that’s exactly what we did. Happy travels!
