The truth is, when you're at The Point, you won't need to search for things to do. Life at the lake is pretty awesome just in and of itself.
Of course there's biking, hiking, swimming, boating and fishing without even having to leave the property!
Cave Point (pictured above) and Whitefish Dunes State Park are just a short bike ride away (less than 2 miles) and are one of the most popular spots to visit. Lake Michigan is half a mile from your doorstep.
The Farm // Every year we get a season pass because we love this place so much! I've been going here since I was a kid. From feeding piglets, cuddling kittens and sheep, feeding baby goats, hold a chick and visit the Peacocks -- your kids will want to stay here for hours!
Hands On Art Studio // This is a great option if you happen to have bad weather (and even if you don't!) They have multiple outbuildings with different art projects to choose from like spin art (my kids favorite!), jewelry making, canvas painting, mosaics, ceramics and more! Make sure to buy a bag of corn and feed the horses on the property!
Door County Trolly - 14 tours to pick from, my personal favorite: the uncorked wine tour!
Washington Island - head to the tippy top point of Door County! I haven't done this since I was a teenager, but I loved it and plan to take our girls soon!
Chives // the BEST mule I've ever had (can you tell we judge a place by their craft cocktails?) with a syrup that they make from scratch (and won't release the recipe).Wild Tomato // This place can get busy (because it's SO good!). Probably my favorite pizza ever. Wood fired and some really creative specialty pizzas. They also do carry out!
CHOP / The place on the list we go back to again and again because it's just so good! /PC Junction // If you have kids, this is a must! The bar has a train that delivers your food and entertains the kids! Grab an ice cream cone when you're done with dinner and head out back to the 4 person bikes, feeding pigs, giant chess set and more!Wickman House // It's a little bit of a drive (a beautiful one!), but they have the best craft cocktails you will ever have. It's worth it just for that, but the food is also spectacular. Stonesthrow Winery // My favorite winery of all time (and the only one worth going to in the area in my opinion!). They often have live music in the summer and offer wine tastings! Door County Brewery // Worth a stop! Fun, lots of board games and of course, good local beer. Barringers // Truffle parmesan fries, Asian fried Brussel sprouts, and the lobster mac n' cheese are some of our favorites here! They have an outdoor fireplace and a really cool indoor/outdoor bar. Parador // Great tapas for sharing and an amazing Cherry Door County Mule! Try the sangria too!
Al Johnson's // the infamous Swedish breakfast place (unbelievable pancakes) with goats on the roof!Fish Boil // well, we've never done this - but Door County is famous for it so it made the list!
