July is when Door County is in full swing. The weather is typically superb, with bright sunshine heating up the days, and comfortable evenings follow the gorgeous sunsets. Cherry-picking season arrives, and our plentiful hiking trails offer a shady bit of exercise before some relaxing sunbathing on our many sandy beaches. 

Even during this unconventional season, vacancies are rare as people see Door County’s wide-open spaces and road-trip-able travel as an ideal way to get out of the house after a long Winter and Spring. We’re thankful for our guests and their continued support during this time, and we’re proud to welcome you, safely, to our County. Enjoy Door County Summer!

Cherry Picking Time!

Door County’s unique climate and soil results in the delicious tart cherries that earned us the “Cherryland” nickname. Picking traditional Door County cherries is a fun family outdoor activity that can yield a sizable harvest for baking pies and other goodies. However, sweet cherries thrive in Door County as well, and they are delicious right off the tree! Now is the time for picking sweet cherries, and tart cherry harvest is imminent as well.

Chalk it Up to Fun

One of the positive and unexpected trends to arise during the pandemic and subsequent quarantine this year is the explosion of chalk art across the country. This unique artform makes the sidewalk your canvas, and Americans have been using it to share positive messages, say “hi” to neighbors, and promote social change. Wisconsin has organized a state-wide event on July 25th and 26th that makes for a great vacation activity for young and old. Find more details on how to participate below:
