Up in Door travel blog

Most of the shops were in old houses

A former house complete with porch is now a store

There were fall floral displays everywhere

This guy was for sale but we just couldn't fit him in...

So many choices

It's all here - and all for sale

We were fascinated by made-to-order donuts

This is the fruit loops donut

Jim designed an oreo donut

We liked this guy

This was a really fun shop

These are all cheese hats

This hat has lots of character

There were a lot of hats to choose from

Ready for Halloween

We played a great mini-golf course


Sister Bay, WI Door County is on a peninsula between Green Bay and Lake Michigan. It’s known for its long shoreline and many parks. It also has lots of shopping. In the 38 miles between Sturgeon Bay and the tip of the peninsula are 7 small towns just on our side of the peninsula with more on the other shore. There are mom-and-pop businesses and eclectic boutiques in each community’s shopping district with handmade, one-of-a-kind gifts made by local artisans as well as products made with locally sourced cheeses, cherries, apples, wines and beers. We were delighted to discover that most of the businesses are in converted houses complete with front porches. We poked into many of the stores and managed to cover only Sister Bay, Ephraim and Fish Creek – so much to look forward to! We also took the time for a round of miniature golf at a super nice course. Luck was on Jim’s side and he came out the winner.
