Things to Do

Peninsula State Park

Scenic state park with miles of biking and hiking trails. You can rent bikes from Nor Door Sports and Cyclery, which is located across from the entrance to the park. The park also has a beautiful 18-hole golf course and a beach where you can rent kayaks and paddle boards.

Wickman House

One of our favorite restaurants and worth the drive north. Reservations recommended.

JJ's La Puerta, Sister Bay

A Skinner family favorite. Make sure to take a walk on the docks with a Margarita before dinner.

Fred and Fuzzy's

Perfect spot to catch a Door County sunset and cocktail.

Al Johnson's

Swedish restaurant with great breakfast and goats on the roof.

Wild Tomato Pizza

Our favorite pizza. Locations in Fish Creek and Sister Bay.


The Skinner family's cottage ("the Hemlocks") is located in this scenic village. Ephraim has many interesting shops and great restaurants, including Good Eggs and Chef's Hat for breakfast, Wilson's for ice cream, and Trixie's for dinner. Rent pontoon boats and jetskis from South Shore Pier.

White Gull Inn

Located in Fish Creek, White Gull is a great option for breakfast or a famous Door County fish boil.
