Carlsville Day Coming Up - A Fun Town!

We like the little town of Carlsville, located between Sturgeon Bay and Egg Harbor right off Hwy 42. Some of our favorite places are there or nearby, like Door Peninsula Winery, Door County Coffee & Tea, Pet Expressions (great little shop!), Schopf's Dairy View Country Store, and Simon Creek Vineyard & Winery.

We just received this press release about the upcoming Carlsville Day, so enjoy!
