Seniors Open the doors in Door County

If you haven’t been to Door County Wisconsin, senior citizens, well you have not seen all of Wisconsin.  This is a unique part of the state that some call Wisconsin’s Peninsula.  It’s home to five state parks, ten lighthouses, and more than 300 miles of shoreline.

Fishing, golfing, all-season trails (bicycling, hiking, XC skiing, snowshoeing, and snowmobiling), swimming, scuba diving to see Great Lakes shipwrecks, and kayaking and sailing are just a few of the outdoor activities that senior visitors will find in Door County.

Many senior visitors report they first visited Door County as children, came back to be married and to honeymoon, and now come to share the joys of the peninsula with their children and grandchildren.

Who knows, you might even catch a glimpse of a ghost that haunts Door County!  By now you know that Jim loves interactive maps.  Here’s the one for Door County.

Cherries, Apples, Galleries Await Senior Travelers



Pack your Door County itinerary full! Hunt for treasures in one-of-a-kind shops, galleries, museums & lighthouses. Pick a pail of ripe Door County cherries in July, or a basket of crunchy apples in September. The Door County peninsula enchants senior visitors with its 300 miles of shoreline, five state parks, cherry and apple orchards, and artist colonies.

I’ve been up there and discovered that Door County’s culture is richly steeped in the arts and history. Sturgeon Bay boasts a history rich in shipbuilding.  Door County is home to one of America’s last drive-in theaters. Festivals throughout the year reflect the seasonally changing face of Door County.

Imagine a town called “Egg Harbor.”  I love that name.  Ephraim, a neat small town with a cultural and historical heritage is a blend of Moravian culture and Norwegian ethnic heritage.

A Festival and a Fish Boil, Wow!

Take in one of the colorful weekend festivals that take place in communities throughout the peninsula and on Washington Island throughout the year. One stop has to be a fish boil. If you don’t know what a “fish boil” is, then take in one at Fish Creek.
