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!
