The fall in Door County is just the cherry on top of an already beautiful place to be.  While Door County is busy in the summer, the fall slows down and still continues to provide endless things to do.  

With five state parks in the county to choose from there are outdoor activities are enhanced with the fall colors.  Whether you want to go hiking, biking, or just capture the fall colors this is the time to do it.  Whenever you choose to come up you won’t have to about finding something to do, as there is always a weekend festival going on.  Fall Festival in Sister Bay on Oct. 13-15, is a can’t miss.  For more information about weekend activities, check out midwestweekends.com.

Another great way to take in all of the autumn colors is to follow the Door County’s Best Fall Color Drives.  They offer a couple different routes on their guide, the Skyline Road in Fish Creek, which makes its way through all of Peninsula State Park.  The Kangaroo Lake Circle in Baileys Harbor is perfect for seeing the Door County countryside as well as Kangaroo Lake.  Cross over Death’s Door to Washington Island for a drive along the coast, be sure to stop at the lookout tower for a 360-degree view!
