Free things to do in Door County

I have a three year old and one of our favorite free activities is going to the many parks around the county. Each village has their own park, or two, where we can go and play. One of my daughter’s favorite places is the park in Sister Bay by the waterfront. We can hang out around the park and take a walk along the marina. It’s a great way to spend an hour or two. We also enjoy the park in Ephraim. It’s right in the center of the village. You can see the water across the street. This is another great place to take a walk around the lake.

Peninsula State Park in Wisconsin is a destination for many Door County tourists. Julie’s Park Café and Motel is at the doorway to the park in Fish Creek. It is a great stop for breakfast on your way into the park or a meal on your way out. The bike trails begin very close to our restaurant. Feel free to stay parked in our parking lot after your meal so you can save the $money$ on a park sticker. Remember that Peninsula State Park has a lot to offer to visitors including hiking and biking trails, a lookout tower, many beach areas, an outdoor theater and much, much more! Hope to see you in the café on your way into the park!
