Itinerary

We depart this morning on a fun-filled trip to Door County, WI, with stops for comfort and lunch on our own along the way. Upon our arrival, we’ll check into the Bridgeport Waterfront Resort for the next four nights and freshen up for a delicious dinner.

(Dinner included)

After breakfast this morning, we will board the ferry for the ride across Death’s Door Passage to Washington Island. Once on land, we’ll step aboard the Cherry Train for a relaxing open-air tram tour that is a must for any Door County traveler! As we journey across fifteen miles of this Lake Michigan island, our guide will describe life on the island and share stories of its history, legends, and folklore. Lunch will be enjoyed on the island before we return to the mainland by ferry and head to Seaquist Orchards. Our step-on guide will entertain and inform us on the inner workings of this family-owned orchard as we tour the acres of cherries, apples, and apricots. Following the tour, we’ll sample a few products before doing some shopping. With a variety of salsas, jams, pie fillings, mustards, homemade fudge, and more, there’s something for every palate. Dinner tonight is a unique experience that can only be found in Door County – a traditional fish boil that is a favorite meal of residents and tourists alike! What began as an economical way to feed large, hungry hoards of lumberjacks and fishermen has become an integral part of the Door County experience. We’ll watch locally caught fish boil on an open fire in an outdoor, community-style kitchen, and when we see the fiery spectacle known as the “boil over,” it will be just about time to eat!

(Breakfast, lunch, and dinner included)

Our day begins with breakfast before we board an old-time trolley to see the best of Door County. Stops will be made at Eagle Bluff Lighthouse for a guided tour, a local winery for a wine tasting, the bluffs at Peninsula State Park, and a roadside market. Lunch is included at a local restaurant. After the tour, we will return to Sturgeon Bay for an afternoon and evening at leisure. There’s a great selection of activities, shops, and restaurants for you to discover!

(Breakfast and lunch included)

This morning, we will visit Renard’s Cheese to try some samples and learn how their cheeses are handcrafted the old fashioned way. Up next is a visit to the Door County Maritime Museum to uncover the rich maritime history of the Great Lakes and get an up-close look at the John Purves tugboat. Authentic and glorious in her details, this vintage 1919 tug has been refinished and restored for viewing the engine room, galley, and cabins. Lunch is on our own before we return to the hotel for an afternoon at leisure. After a lovely dinner together, we will enjoy an entertaining show at the Peninsula Players Theatre on the shores of Green Bay. It’s America’s oldest resident summer theater and has a tradition of providing exceptional productions of classic and contemporary literature.

(Breakfast and dinner included)

Today we bid farewell to Door County and begin our journey home with lunch at Ferch’s Malt Shoppe & Grille along the way.
