The Cape Cod Of The Midwest Is Right Here In Wisconsin And It’s Stunning

With more than 300 miles of shoreline on Green Bay and Lake Michigan, a tourist culture that stretches across the state and the country, and a focus on boating and being on the water, it’s no surprise that our very own Door County draws comparisons to that popular getaway out on the east coast, though locals like to say that Cape Cod is the Door County of the northeast. On Friday afternoons, you’ll find a steady stream of folks heading north from the Milwaukee and Chicago areas to spend the weekend relaxing in this charming area.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
