  1. My husband and I are celebrating our 10th anniversary this year and we are heading to Door County for the first time. Looking for answers on what to do in the Spring in Door County--places to go, food to eat and the must do's of the area.

  2. First, congratulations on your anniversary!

    We will be posting either today or tomorrow our 20 Things to Do this spring in Door County on So check back with that - and you can also see our Calendar of Events for March and April - on the site now.

    Fun things to do are winery tours, take a cool trolley ride, see a play at the Third Avenue Playhouse, maybe some music at the White Gull Inn (have to check their schedule for when you will be there), and definitely stop in at Liberty Square in Egg Harbor - great restaurant, and 9 wonderful shops including a Gourmet Food Wine and Spirits shop - awesome!

    Go to Cave Point in Jacksonport - beautiful in spring (we just videoed the thaw there this week!) Try the state parks for driving or hiking (Peninsula State Park is our favorite). Let us know if you need more info!

    Have fun on your anniversary trip - and let us know where you will be staying or if you need info on where to stay!

  3. Who's coming to Door County this Spring?!? WE ARE!! ... Wayne and Barbara from Wind Lake Wisconsin! haha

    Gas prices be damned, there isn't another place we enjoy driving to, and spending time in, than Door County. We've been regular visitors for over 20 years now and it never gets old. We especially enjoy going up in October, the fall colors are beyond words. We'll be up in June but we'll also be back in the fall. It's tradition for us.

    BTW, we'll be celebrating our 34th anniversary this summer, any idea where we should go to celebrate? haha

  4. Hi Wayne! Congratulations on your anniversary! There are some wonderful B&Bs in Door County that would be nice, or how about a great fine dining experience? Try The Waterfront in Sister Bay, Mission Grille or Inn at Kristofer's in Sister Bay, Whistling Swan or Alexander's in Fish Creek or the Harbor Fish Market and Grille in Baileys Harbor - all terrific!

    Other nice places to dine are The English Inn, C&C Supper Club, White Gull Inn, Gibraltar Grill - all in Fish Creek too, or breakfast, lunch or dinner at The Cookery (Fish Creek). Trio in Egg Harbor is nice too, or a little Lunch at Harbor Landing also in Egg Harbor.

    Go on a winery tour! Just some ideas! Have fun!

  5. My husband and I celebrated our 10th anniversary in Door County last May (our first time to DC!) and we plan to celebrate our 11th by returning next month!

    Last year we stayed at Bay Breeze Resort in Ephraim- wonderful place to stay, beautiful suite, great water view, and amazing gardens everywhere you look! We dined at Inn at Kristofer's, Mission Grille, White Gull Inn, The Cookery, and Wilson's. We LOVED the Mission Grille and can't wait to return there next month. We visited Lautenbach's Orchard Country Winery and had a wonderful tour and tasting. We visited Peninsula State Park and a couple of the lighthouses. We did do some shopping, although at that time of year many shops were not yet open during the week. Favorites included Fish Creek Basketry for handwoven baskets and Newport House gallery in Ellison Bay for Folk Art/ Antiques.

    This year we plan to stay at Blacksmith Inn on the Shore in Bailey's Harbor, visit the Ridges Sanctuary and take the ferry to Washington Island. We also hope to do some kayaking this year- hopefully they will be open! Cave Point also looks like somthing to consider. We'd like to visit another winery- does Stone's throw use any locally grown friut in their wine or is it all shipped from out of state?

  6. Sage - that sounds awesome! You mention lots of places we are very fond of! Hope you found them on our site! Please be sure to tell them that you did - that helps us.

    Blacksmith Inn is wonderful! Joan and Bryan are terrific innkeepers - tell them we said hi!

    Watch our videos on Cave Point, Ridges and others to get more of a flavor for these spots! Have fun and Happy Anniversary!
