One of the Midwest’s premier travel destination offers a free travel guide to help aide visitors in planning a memorable trip to Door County. With engaging content and breathtaking photography, the guide helps tell the Door County story. A new addition to the guide is a page of user-generated photos from visitors showing their Door County story. Photos are collected on various social media using #doorcounty.
Travel information can be found throughout the guide with special sections and business listings on the arts, history & culture, recreation, dining, shopping, lodging, services, group travel, event planning and profiles of the communities that make up Door County. A 2018 calendar of events and index help maximize the usefulness of the guide. A panoramic wrap-around cover image that features a kayaker at sunrise at Anclam Park in Baileys Harbor runs from the front to the back in this year’s edition.
Visitors will also find a large format removable map in the guide. Pull-away adhesive keeps the map firmly in the book, but also provides the opportunity to remove the map and use it as a stand-alone navigational aid. On the back of the map visitors will find the top five must-do activities in each community across the peninsula and on Washington Island.
The Official Door County Visitor Guide is the primary fulfillment piece mailed and distributed outside of the county to visitors requesting information by phone and online through the Door County Visitor Bureau. 240,000 guides have been printed for distribution in 2018.
Guides can be found at visitor centers, travel agencies and other outlets in Wisconsin and throughout the Midwest. Additionally, a digital version of the guide is available at DoorCounty.com. The digital version is great on mobile and tablet devices as well as desktop and laptop computers. Users can virtually flip through pages and will find hyperlinks, videos, extra photo galleries and more about featured businesses and attractions in the digital version. Visitors now have the option to listen to automatically generated audio of the guide online, as well.
Within the county, guides are distributed at the Door County Welcome Center, 1015 Green Bay Road in Sturgeon Bay, and at other community visitor centers throughout Door County. Local businesses are encouraged to make the complimentary 2018 guides available for their customers as well. The Paper Boy delivery service has already begun distributing to area businesses and will continue delivery to businesses that are currently open over the next few weeks. Door County businesses that would like to specifically request delivery may contact the DCVB at 920-743-4456.
