Below is a sneak peek of some of the top favored, family-friendly attractions to experience while in beautiful Sturgeon Bay, Door County.

Visit a Lighthouse

Sturgeon Bay has three lighthouses- Sherwood Point Lighthouse, North Pierhead Light, and Sturgeon Bay Ship Canal Lighthouse. All three lighthouses are viewable by land or water! Sherwood Point Lighthouse and Sturgeon Bay Ship Canal Lighthouse will be open to the public during the Lighthouse Festival, June 8-10, 2018.

Take a Unique Tour

Tour around Sturgeon Bay in a variety of different ways. Sail the waters of Sturgeon Bay, step onboard the Chicago Fireboat, Segway through the streets, or ride a Door County Trolley.

Visit a Farm

Hold the baby goats, kittens, and chicks, milk a goat, and feed the baby farm animals at The Farm. Pack a picnic and stay all day or visit for a few hours. The animals can’t wait to see you!

Go Fish

Because Sturgeon Bay is surrounded by water, there is plenty of great fishing to be had. Catch the trophy fish you have always wanted to reel in with a fishing guide and captain from one of the many fishing charter options available. Check out the Sturgeon Bay Sport Fishing Association, Bousley's Sport Fishing Charters & DC Custom Rods, and the Sturgeon Bay Open Bass Tournament.
