It never fails to amaze how quickly the holidays arrive, and with Thanksgiving just over a week away, we are thankful for this upcoming season. The holidays are a time where we can put the noise and distractions of the year behind us and spend time focused on what really matters. 

This year, many families are keeping their holiday gatherings small or spending the holidays at home. Others see opportunity in the lack of a traditional season and are considering a holiday vacation. Door County is a popular destination during the holidays, perfect for a weekend shopping getaway, or even a socially-distanced celebration away from home. If you’re considering a holiday trip this year, we have availability! While you gear up for your holiday season, consider a trip to Door County this season.

Enjoy the Christmas Lights…from a Distance

Even though it means a more subdued Christmas celebration will take place this year, we will do what needs to be done to ensure that we keep health and safety a top priority. Nothing is more important, especially during the season of giving, than to protect one another. 

Different communities in Door County are taking different approaches to the usual holiday celebrations in order to reduce crowds. Here in Sister Bay, our traditional celebration will not be held this year. However, the lights will still be lit, and our great businesses will be as festive as ever. So bundle up, grab a hot drink, and enjoy Door County at Christmastime!
