Yes, Door County is OPEN for Thanksgiving…

Some years, the whole, “spend endless hours cooking and doing dishes” thing, is just not what you pictured for Thanksgiving Day. In that case, here is an alternative plan…Head right over to Door County. Get settled in a warm and comfy room at Julie’s Motel or a classy condo at Evergreen Hill, then take a peek at some of the delicious choices available if you want to let someone else do the cooking!! THIS is your definitive guide to all things Thanksgiving in Door County!

First and foremost, having someone else make BREAKFAST on Thanksgiving Day is the ULTIMATE LUXURY (go head, you know you want to!!). If you’re ready to indulge, head south to Scaturo’s for some home baking in Sturgeon Bay or up north to Al Johnson’s for Swedish pancakes! And now… on to the LUNCH/DINNER OPTIONS….
