Lighthouse in Door County

We’ve been talking about it endlessly for over a year: when will things get back to normal? In Door County, nothing is ever normal. Our County is unique, awe-inspiring, sometimes mysterious and a little strange, but never normal. That’s why you keep coming back: Door County is your escape from the normal. 

This year, we’re taking it up a notch. We’re welcoming back friendly faces with a County that has weathered the pandemic, and positioned itself to have our biggest year ever. We’ve taken precautions seriously and continue to hold the health and safety of our guests in the highest regard. As the situation evolves and government guidance changes, we’ll continue to work towards our ultimate goal of giving our guests the best experience possible. 

This Door County summer is shaping up to be BIG: reservations are filling up, the sun is warming our peninsula more and more each day, and happy faces are everywhere. This year, you’ll find old favorites as well unexpected new places to dineand shop, with plans put on hold last year that are finally coming to fruition. It’s what we’ve all been anxiously awaiting – welcome back!

Door County is OPEN!

Gearing Up for a Big Year

The pandemic took us all by surprise last year, but Door County’s hospitality community is ready for 2021. We’ve made above-average progress on vaccinations in our community, and combined with our stringent health and safety policies, we’ve seen very low numbers for months. Door County is safe and ready.

We’re Back!

It’s thrilling to see daily announcements of favorite events and activities that are returning after a year off. Most exciting to us is the return of concerts and movies at Waterfront Park in Sister Bay. Anyone who has enjoyed this weekly event in the past will tell you that it shouldn’t be missed. Beyond that, there are tons of events that are gearing up for a big year, and a big celebration of summer in Door County.
