Resting on a peninsula jutting out into Lake Michigan, Door County has 300 miles of scenic shoreline home to 34 outlying islands. Also, there are no less than 53 public beaches. These range from the popular Whitefish Dunes to the Schoolhouse Beach on Washington Island — one of the world’s five limestone beaches. There are many charming small towns that dot Door County’s coastline from Egg Harbor, named one of The Culture Trip’s most beautiful Wisconsin towns, to the lovely village of Ephraim. In addition, 11 historic lighthouses can be found, one of the largest clusters of lighthouses in any US state.
