At a Glance

Wisconsin’s Door County is home to the second highest concentration of lighthouses of any U.S. county — 10 of them grace the scenic shoreline of this 75-mile-long peninsula jutting into Lake Michigan. Expert presentations illuminate the history of the lighthouses and their importance to ships navigating through a passage that French explorers named Porte des Morts Passage, the “Door to the Way to Death.” One of the most striking areas of the U.S., Door County offers visitors an unparalleled experience.

Best of all, you'll ...

  • Journey through picturesque Door County with stops at lighthouses and range lights and discover other lighthouses on boat excursions.
  • Go inside and learn about the keepers of the Eagle Bluff Lighthouse, beautifully restored by the Door County Historical Society.
  • Enjoy a look at Door County’s extensive cultural community of artists, craftsmen, and museum professionals.
