It's a big decision!  Regardless of your age, you've decided to make a change and move to (or move back to) Door County, Wisconsin.  With so much going on over the past few years, we thought we'd give you a rundown of what makes the towns and villages of northern Door County so attractive!  Let us help you make an educated choice on where to live in Door County, Wisconsin with some tips below:


Egg Harbor:  Egg Harbor, Wisconsin has both a town and a village:  The Village of Egg Harbor is comprised of downtown Egg Harbor, with unique shops, a grocery store, eateries, outdoor music concerts and more.  People love Egg Harbor because of it's a little year-round community.  If you spread out to the Town of Egg Harbor, things become more rural, but you're still never more than a few minutes away from the water.  One of Egg Harbor's main attractions is golf, with the Horseshoe Bay Golf Club, Stonehenge and The Alpine Golf Course.  If you're looking to build an Egg Harbor home, we are offering an attractive site close to The Alpine for golf lovers.  See more about Egg Harbor land for sale here.  If you don't want to build, Egg Harbor offers a wide variety of housing choices, including single family homes and Egg Harbor condominiums for sale, too.
