Door County's most wonderful time of the year.....if I had to pick any time to spend in Door County as a visitor, I'd choose the holiday season. Door County during the Holidays: The Most Wonderful Time of the Year. Real estate is busy the week between Christmas and the New Year, so obviously people are on to this well kept secret of when to visit the Door Peninsula in winter. However, when you view the magic of the ice on the bay, the holiday light displays in each town and village...this time is a truly magical in northern Door County. At night, when each town and village is tucked in for the evening...as you walk or drive by and see fires lit on the hearth, and children hanging stockings and playing holiday games.
What can you do during the holidays in Door County? There are more events than you can keep track of, from splendid sales to special meals, during our holiday weeks from Thanksgiving through the New Year. There are lovely holiday services at our places of worship, and if there is snow, it becomes an incredibly special time, with sleigh rides, sledding, ice skating and more. No snow? How about trying out a Door County Trolley ride to see the holiday lights? I've already visited Uncle Tom's Candies, the Funky Cookie Studio, and the Sister Bay Bowl for holiday gifts this season, trying to Shop Local--Door County.
There are no waits at our dining establishments, and Door County's Wisconsin State parks (Peninsula and Newport) are open for either hiking, biking, sledding or skiing, depending on the weather and snow conditions. Sister Bay's ice rink will open when temperatures permit for family skating.
The best part of this year is looking at the skies. The stars are so bright, and seem so close....it's almost as though you could reach out and touch them. If you're very lucky, you may see a Northern Lights display, too. Last night our family took a walk through Sister Bay to see the light displays...we created a memory I will enjoy for a lifetime.
If you're looking for a weekend getaway or just a new way to enjoy the holidays, try a visit to Door County this season for the Christmas or New Year weekend.
