In Wisconsin, the 70-mile-long Door County consists of five state parks, a handful of lighthouses, and 300 miles of shoreline. Its beauty is in the numbers: the region draws more than two million visitors every year. On its tip, the village of Sister Bay delivers crowd-building sunsets over Sturgeon Bay and outdoor activities year-round—not to mention ample shops and restaurants.

Al Johnson's Swedish Restaurant

Holding fast to the area’s Swedish heritage, Al Johnson’s meatballs and pancakes are notable, and so is the restaurant’s grass roof with grazing goats.

White Gull Inn

The antiques-decorated rooms and suites at the historic inn have private baths and cozy fireplaces. While here, experience a fish boil at the inn, where you can learn about and watch the preparation of Lake Michigan whitefish over an open fire.

Peninsula State Park

The park offers seasonal sports and spectacular views of famed Door County sunsets.
