Tour Plan


Day 1 | Milwaukee

We head north today through the outskirts of Chicago to Milwaukee. Located on the shores of Lake Michigan, Milwaukee is perhaps best known for its famous breweries and baseball. We overnight at the Drury Plaza Milwaukee Downtown, close to the Milwaukee Riverwalk.

Day 2 | Manitowoc to Sturgeon Bay

This morning, on our tour of Milwaukee, we see historic Third Ward, the lakefront, stop at North Point Lighthouse, pass the breweries and on through the Old World Third Street neighborhood ending with a tour at the Harley-Davidson Museum. Lunch today will be at MOTOR, on the Harley-Davidson campus. This afternoon we learn about Wisconsin’s rich maritime heritage at the Wisconsin Maritime Museum. Adventurous folks can take a guided tour of the sub and those less adventurous can see the video tour and visit the museum. We continue on to Sturgeon Bay, where we check into our hotel for a 3-night stay. (B,L)

Day 3 | Washington Island

This morning a local guide will join us to narrate the boat ride as well as our entire visit to Washington Island. Stops include the Washington Harbor, School House Beach, Farm Museum and Stav Church. Lunch on the island allows time for a little shopping at Mann’s Mercantile. This afternoon we ride the ferry back to the mainland and visit the Ephraim Lavender Shop. Dinner tonight will be at a local Sturgeon Bay Supper Club. (B,L,D)

Day 4 | Door County

Our local guide joins us again this morning. We visit the Old Rugged Cross, have samples and shopping at the Door Peninsula Winery, enjoy some free time in Egg Harbor and have lunch at Al Johnson’s, serving traditional Swedish fare. They are famous for the goats that graze on the sod roof atop the log-cabin eatery. This afternoon, we visit and tour Seaquist Farm Market, climb the Peninsula State Park Tower. The day ends in Fish Creek with dinner at Pelletier’s, featuring the “fish boil,” a Scandinavian tradition dating back to lumberjack days. (B,L,D)

Day 5 | Green Bay to Ft. Adkinson

Today we say goodbye to Door County and travel to Green Bay, Wisconsin’s oldest settlement. It is also the smallest city to host a National Football league team and the only NFL team to be owned by its fans. The Lambeau Field Tour allows fans to experience the Packers’ history-rich facility firsthand and see some of the behind-the-scenes areas. At the Hall of Fame, you will see Packers legends describe historic games in their own words and see displays of trophies from the Packers’ 13 world championships, including four Lombardi trophies. This afternoon we continue south to Ft. Adkinson. Tonight we enjoy the Fireside Dinner Theatre featuring a delicious meal and Broadway show "Rocky." (B,D)

Day 6 | Return Home

We begin our journey home with wonderful memories of the Door County Peninsula, a Midwest treasure that mixes fascinating history, cultures, scenic beauty, delicious food and delightful people. (B)
