March in Door County is a month of preparation. Plans are underway all over the county for the summer season. Construction projects abound, as new businesses and road repairs ready the county for influx of summer visitors. Winter begins to loosen its grip on the peninsula, and as the ice thaws, the days are a little more comfortable for some outdoor enjoyment.
Door County spring presents a unique opportunity to take a break from your busy work and school schedule, and find a relaxing place to hunker down for a long weekend. Take in the beauty of Door County nature as it awakes from its winter slumber, then partake in one of our many great restaurants with winter hours (more opening for the season soon!), and then rest back at your cozy room at Open Hearth Lodge. Book your spring getaway now!
Things to do in Spring
Our best Door County spring recommendations always involve the great outdoors. While it’s true that the trails can be a bit more challenging this time of year, there are also more options like cross country skiing and fat tire biking to consider. Get out and enjoy nature! Here are some ideas:

Spring and early summer are when the orchards blossom, in a picture-perfect wave from the south of the county to the north. Plan your cherry trip with Destination Door County’s Cherry Blossom Report:
