Baileys Harbor, WI
This small, quiet village was once a logging center. Today it is jam-packed with things to do. Visit a century-old lighthouse, go to a fun seasonal festival, pick up fresh vegetables at the farmer's market, or go boating... it's all there!
Carlsville, WI
This serene little village, surrounded by rolling farm fields, will surprise you. There's made-from-scratch ice cream, the peninsula's only major water park, a corn maze in season, and a winery that offers tours and tastings. Go – there's something for everyone!
Egg Harbor, WI
This classic Door County village sits on the bay. Legend says its unusual name may be from a friendly egg battle between early fur traders as they raced to shore — or from a nest of ducks eggs found by the county’s first settler. Go swimming!
Ellison Bay, WI
This pretty little hamlet is reminiscent of old Door County. Wide, tree-lined streets without sidewalks, an old general store, clapboard buildings, and neighborly folks who ride bikes around town add to its timeless quaintness.
Ephraim, WI
This beautiful and picturesque village — dotted with pristine white clapboard buildings and picket fences — has unsurpassed views of the bay, museums, a long sandy beach, and endless ways to enjoy the water. Go splash around in the bay!
Fish Creek, WI
This old fishing village is reminiscent of the New England coastline with its string of century-old white clapboard buildings, horseshoe-shaped shoreline, and sailboats floating in the bay. Go explore Peninsula State Park!
Jacksonport, WI
This tranquil village nestled on the shorelines of Lake Michigan, has sandy beaches, rocky shoreline cliffs, peaceful trails, quiet back roads, parks, festivals, and a great farmer's market. Go hike, bike, swim – or just hang out!
Gills Rock, WI
This authentic fishing village lies at the northernmost tip of the peninsula — known as the ‘top of the thumb.’ Island ferries, weathered fishing sheds, and an old fishing boat that sits on dry land reflect its historic maritime heritage. Go fishing!
Sister Bay, WI
This historic village with deep Scandinavian roots bustles with activity every summer. Kids splash in the bay, families explore the shops, boats launch from the marina, and goats graze on the grass roof of a Swedish restaurant. Go see the goats!
Southern Door, WI
This beautiful area encompasses the rolling fields and farmlands south of Sturgeon Bay. It is also the gateway to a rich Belgian heritage —historic votive chapels, red brick farmhouses, one-room schoolhouses, and ethnic foods. Go tour!
