About Sturgeon Bay

Anchor your next getaway in Sturgeon Bay, Door County! Nestled between the waters of Green Bay and Lake Michigan, Sturgeon Bay is proud of its vital maritime heritage. The history of Sturgeon Bay’s waterfront and its boats – from dugout canoes to schooners to wartime vessels and giant commercial carriers are all on display in our fine City.

Sturgeon Bay’s ongoing love affair with the water is evident all along the waterfront. Luxury yachts are custom built for global clientele and large commercial vessels are manufactured and repaired.

Lighthouse beacons, now automated, shine over the waters of Green Bay and Lake Michigan.

A historic fireboat provides narrated waterfront cruises. Or enjoy an evening cruise for dinner and take in the spectacular Door County sunset. The modern marinas house sleek pleasure crafts and charter fishing boats.

There is a lot more than water to attract visitors to Door County’s premier year-round City!

Sturgeon Bay, Door County is proud to be known as the B&B capital of the Midwest. Our City is painted with these historic beauties. Each offers its own romantic experience.
