Day Trip to Door County

Wednesday, September 14, 2016

Over Labor Day weekend we took a day trip to Door County, Wisconsin. Door County is the peninsula that jets out into Lake Michigan. Its full for small harbor towns that seem to be stuck in time. My favorite was the Swedish Restaurant that had a grass roof, in classic Scandinavian style, that had goats on top to "trim" the grass!

We decided to go all the way to the tip of the peninsula and take the ferry to Washington Island. The ferry ride is short one, never more than 30 minutes. Once on the island we hopped on the Cherry Train. Its really a few trolley cars attached to a truck and it drove us around the island giving us a little bit of history and making a few stops along the way.

We stopped at the island's Art & Nature Center, Schoolhouse Beach Park, their Wisconsin Farm museum, and the Nordic Church. The island is FULL of other things to do such as their lavender farms and little tourists shops.

We would LOVE to go back and take some bikes and bike around the island and/or take some camping gear up there for a weekend!

Hope y'all are having an amazing week!!
