Occasionally we hear tourists remark, “It must be so quiet up here in Door County. There’s probably nothing to do and nowhere to go. Must be pretty boring for everyone.” Wrong! Door County is an all-seasons tourist destination and winter season tourism is growing every year. Snow or no snow, the list of things to do here in winter seems endless. There are theater and concert performances, art shows, lectures, potlucks (all are welcome) festivals, trivia tournaments, dances, spas, make and take venues, book talks, sledding, cozy coffeehouses, cross country skiing, nature center activities for kids and adults, ice and snow sculptures displays, movies , wineries, breweries, and on and on and on. Best of all, these winter possibilities are right out the door from Birchwood Lodge in Sister Bay. Speaking of things to do, we’ve got the heated swimming pool with attached sauna, an inviting sitting area in the lobby near the fireplace, ping-pong, ladder golf, video games, a puzzle table, and spacious suites (at the lowest rates of the year) with more comforts than you might find at home. So, bundle up, gas up the car and head north to join others who have discovered that winter in Door County isn’t the quiet season anymore.
