When you live in Chicago (or Chicage, as it is known to some), getting away to a place where one can breathe fresh air, hear birds chirp, and see stars in the night sky is not a luxury, it is essential to one’s sanity and well being. Thankfully, the Door County peninsula is within reach.

This was our first visit to the area and my impression is there’s something for everyone in Door. One might stay in an historic inn on the Green Bay side, where golf, tennis and sailing make for a proper outing. Or more to our liking, one might stay in a yurt on a rainy night, then move to a state park the next, while spending the day hiking, swimming and exploring the woods and coastline via bicycle.
