A Prescription for Winter




Winter is the quiet season in Door County, and for the soul that is looking for some space to exhale, it is the perfect elixir.

If solitude is the tonic of choice, Door County’s scenic beauty is certain to lift your spirits. The Ridges Sanctuary has trails for snowshoeing and Peninsula State Park has groomed cross country ski trails with a candlelight ski scheduled for the first Saturday in February. An array of comfy coffee shops offer corners to sip and reflect.

February means romance. A bit of bubbly, a cozy fireplace and a relaxing whirlpool may be just the right medicine. Plan an indulgent day at the Spa at Sacred Grounds. Complete the scenario with a fireside table and delectable offerings at the Whistling Swan.

Should visions of a beer tent, music, food and a festive atmosphere put a skip in your step, Baileys Harbor Winter Carnival, Fish Creek’s Winter Festival and Sturgeon Bay’s Fire and Ice Fest are sure to leave you with a lighter heart.

For those who find shopping the best restorative of all, the winter sales in Door County’s unique shops will leave you whistling all the way home.

No matter what your remedy, Door County offers the antidote.
