Fall Leaf Color in Door County
Fall is a fantastic time in Door County. Everything is a little more laid-back, with a quieter and calmer atmosphere. Fall is also the time to visit and view the some of the most vibrant colors in all of Wisconsin–we call it leaf-peeping.
Today, September 18, 2018 the color is just at 5%. Color is expected to reach its peak in the third week of October. You can track the fall color, the best leaf-peeping times, all over Wisconsin at the Fall Color Report.
So with the quieter, laid-back atmosphere what is there to do? Lots. Pumpkin Patch Festival in Egg Harbor, Sister Bay’s Fall Fest, fishing, apple picking and farmer’s markets galore, there’s even time to take a boat ride or get your kayak in the water. An of course all the shops, restaurants, wineries, breweries and art galleries are alive and open.
