Although we are enjoying a remarkably warm winter, there is still much to do. A light dusting of snow covers our iconic orchards and forests providing a beautiful setting for a romantic getaway. Door County has many activities to choose from such as getting a couple’s massage, moon lit sleigh rides through snow covered fields or horse drawn carriage through the streets, romantic dinners, sightseeing and much more.
With such a small amount of snow accumulation, we are able to enjoy a stroll through a forest on foot instead of using snowshoes or skiis. Some great places to take advantage of these silent sports are at any of the state and town parks, Toft’s Point or Ridges Sanctuary in Baileys Harbor or Cave Point south of Jacksonport. Check out Winter in Door County for all the latest trail conditions and outdoor events.
