Creative people have long been drawn to Door County’s quality of life and scenic inspiration, and they have created a welcoming artistic community that you will find supportive and stimulating. Door County is a narrow finger of a peninsula, thirteen miles across at its widest point, with Lake Michigan along its eastern shore and the bay of Green Bay along the west. It’s a magical place with 300 miles of shoreline, five state parks, eleven lighthouses, and miles of scenic roadways traveling through a countryside filled with orchards, old barns, wildflower meadows, and a string of small villages.
Come to write but also to wander the beaches, visit neighboring islands, hike a wooded trail, bike, sail, kayak, or snowshoe. Summers are perfect but the “off-seasons” are spectacular, too. Visit the Door County Visitor Bureau website, www.doorcounty.com, for information about Door County.
