There are so many FUN activities to do  during    Fall     in Sturgeon Bay! 

One of our top highlights is to visit Cave Point County Park, perhaps the most iconic natural landscape of Door County.

Stroll the sand dunes, or bask in the Indian Summer sunshine at Whitefish Dunes State Park. Enjoy a picnic at one of the beautiful beaches of Otumba Park, Sunset Park or Whitefish Dunes Park. YourPassNow is a digital marketplace that allows Wisconsin state park visitors to conveniently purchase their annual state park passes online.

Visit Door County Maritime Museum, with interactive exhibits and  where Great Lakes maritime history comes alive! Their new Jim Kress Maritime Lighthouse Tower is now open with beautiful views of Sturgeon Bay!

Take a stroll around the waterfront, watching the maritime hustle and bustle and relaxing to the sounds of the water and waterfowl. Don't forget our beautiful "Bridge Walk". It's a 1.2 mile route as you take in the wide-open spaces and the beauty that early Fall in Sturgeon Bay has to offer. Do some shopping in our three shopping districts and beyond, or sit outside at one of our many outdoor dining establishments with a great meal or warm drink.

Stop in at our weekly Farm and Craft Market on Saturday mornings, or take a drive to our U.S. Coast Guard Station to get an up-close look at two of our lighthouses, including the North Pierhead,also known as "Big Red", one of the most photographed lighthouses in Door County!

We are in the office and ready to help you plan your visit. Please call (920) 743-6246 Monday-Friday 9AM - 5PM or Saturday 9AM - 1PM or email us at vacation@sturgeonbay.net

Many businesses are understaffed this year. Please be patient and be kind. Thanks for loving Sturgeon Bay as much as we do!
