COOL Places Close By/Spring Break ’19

Door County

Looking for somewhere that has breathtaking scenery and a local feel that will give you a sense of belonging? Door County is a place you should visit this spring break. Door County offers a myriad of activities, from hiking to dining. There is something here for everyone.

Door Peninsula State Park

Places to hike this spring break. Try visiting Peninsula State Park, in Fish Creek or Newport State Park, located in Ellison or Whitefish Dunes State Park, in Sturgeon Bay. All three of these State Parks offer snowshoeing, weather permitting picnicking, and camping. Get some fresh air, and get your heart rate pumping with some light to moderate exercise.

However, in Wisconsin the weather is more than finicky; some days will bring 12 inches of snow and the next day will be sunny with 50-degree weather. So on the off chance the weather improves and all the snow melts, you can still enjoy the outdoors and what Door County has to offer by hiking the numerous trails throughout the area’s state parks.

Door County is known for its wineries, so what better way to get the full Door County experience than to drop by and take a tour and maybe a sample. Drink responsibly and check out the Door Peninsula Winery and the Door County Trolley. The legal drinking age in Wisconsin is 21.

If you’re looking for a great local pizza place that offers wood-fired pizza then you should check out Wild Tomato. Grab a slice and enjoy the atmosphere.
