Door County

Wisconsin

This narrow, 70-mile-long peninsula is Wisconsin’s northeast finger, lined with picturesque lakeside towns and beaches wrapping around 300 miles of shoreline. Named for Death’s Door, the narrow passage between the tip of the peninsula where Lake Michigan and the Green Bay converge, it’s a vacation haven rife with small-town charm (ice cream stands, B&Bs, pontoon-boat docks) and around 23,000 acres of preserved land ideal for exploring.
