Praised by visitors from around the world as “Wisconsin’s Cape Cod,” this ride explores hundreds of coves offering culinary delights, state parks, and lighthouses. The route departs from a pioneer community that began with a couple sawmills and today is a maritime port city. As you follow along the Green Bay shoreline, visit a village named after a nest of duck eggs. Then climb the ridge and visit a town, originally a Menominee Indian village, with a name that means “trout fishing.” At the gates of Peninsula State Park, enjoy miles of scenic park roads with a lighthouse to visit along the way. After reaching a town with a name chosen from the Bible, meaning “doubly fruitful,” circle to the south to Lake Michigan’s side of the peninsula. Along this shoreline visit a community named after the captain who discovered this bay. After jogging out into the countryside, you return to the shore to a village named after a battle in France that affected the Revolutionary War. You then pass a few tree farms and roll back into Sturgeon Bay to sample a few Scandinavian traditions: the Door County fish boil topped off with a slice of the county’s cherry pie.
