Training Camp Traveler: Door County

Door County

After the cold and seemingly endless winters, Wisconsinites welcome the summer whole-heartedly. What better way to kick the Green Bay Packers’ Training Camp off than a trip to Door County? Visitors from all over the world often refer to the 70-mile long sliver of land as the Cape Cod of the Midwest. More than two million people visit the peninsula throughout the year. You’re probably wondering, what makes Door County a vacation destination? One-of-a-kind shops, galleries, museums and lighthouses are just a few reasons the county is a small wonder.

 If you’re looking for a thrill, perhaps going zip lining or renting a Segway is the adventure for you. Or horse-back riding at the great Kurtz Coral and taking a sailing cruise to Washington Island can provide you and your family a great time.

You can’t bring up Door County without mentioning food. Grab a pail of ripe cherries in July or enjoy carnival rides, food stands and an animal barn at the Door County Fair in August. The Door Peninsula is home to eight wineries that offer tours and tastings. Cherry wine is very popular since cherries are a native crop, but grape wine is also produced. After working up an appetite, try dining at one of the award-winning restaurants or perhaps taking in a traditional Door County Fish Boil.

Whether it’s relaxing on the beach or hiking through the state parks, Door County is an ideal vacation for Packer fans alike.
