Door County Classic Professional Review and Guide
"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."
