Most everyone has favorite memories of places they have traveled to around this country and internationally. No doubt you have photos (pasted in albums or collected on your phone) that you occasionally peruse to remind you of the good times you had in scenic, exciting and fun locations. Perhaps you have special memories of the first time you visited Door County,too. This unique part of the Midwest is a geographical and cultural  treasure for Wisconsin. Do you remember the first time you visited here? All “first-timers” usually make their way to Peninsula State Park, Cave Point, the winding section of Highway 42 in Gills Rock, and leisurely strolls/drives along the shores of Green Bay and Lake Michigan. Those classic Door County locations are not only at the top of the list for new visitors, they are must see places in every season for return travelers and year round residents. Once you get a taste of Door County, you may be hooked for life. This region grabs hold of your senses and infuses joy, wonder and relaxation in your spirit and psyche. Let me suggest that while spring and summer are the most popular seasons up here, fall and winter put on their own special seasonal show to lure folks here. The brilliantly beautiful colors of fall foliage creeps in from early October and sustains in gold carpets of leaves until mid November. By then, some of us eagerly anticipate the first measurable snowfall as Door County truly becomes a winter wonderland. Door County is a memory maker because of its diverse scenery, boundless culinary variety, unique shopping experiences, array cultural arts offerings, and a wide array of recreational activities. What we often hear from people is that Door County is a throwback to older times, with a less hurried pace of life and small town friendliness.
