If You Are Lucky Enough to Live By the Sea, You Are Lucky Enough!

You may not find the sea in or around Door County, but you will find water–lots of water. 300 miles of shore surrounded by Lake Michigan to the east and the Bay of Green Bay to the west, with calm harbors, bays and inland lakes scattered all around.

Because of Door County’s geography, a long narrow peninsula, you really are never more than 15 minutes from the water.  Door County is 70 miles long, only about 18 miles at its widest point at the southern part and less than 2 miles wide at the northern tip.  Begin at the county line and drive to the northern tip at Northport and you’ll spend just an hour out of your day.  I cannot guarantee though that you won’t be tempted to stop along the way to partake of our fabulous eateries, tempting candy shops, wineries or spectacular shopping experiences.  If the water is your interest here are some fast facts:
