Day 3 : Door County

Enjoy a full day discovering Wisconsin’s Door County, the Cape Cod of the Midwest. Door County has more miles of shoreline, more lighthouses and more state parks than any other county in the United States. Wave battered cliffs, sun kissed beaches, wooded retreats, quaint farms and lush orchards await us. We travel into Peninsula State Park to tour the Eagle Bluff Lighthouse and view the beautiful woodland and scenic shoreline within the park. We enjoy leisure time to explore the charming waterfront community of Fish Creek and afterward visit Door Peninsula Winery for a true taste of Door County. Located along Sturgeon Bay’s busy waterfront, the Door County Maritime Museum highlights the area’s intriguing maritime roots. We explore the unique exhibits and learn about the rich shipping and fishing industries of the area.

Day 4 : Mackinac Island

This morning we depart Sturgeon Bay and travel through Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. Our route passes through evergreen and hardwood forests and along portions of Lake Michigan’s scenic shoreline. Soon we approach the Straits of Mackinac, the waterway connecting Lake Michigan and Lake Huron. Here we drive across the Mackinac Bridge, one of the largest suspension bridges in the world. The bridge was opened in 1957 and connects Michigan’s Upper and Lower peninsulas. At the southern end of the bridge is Mackinaw City where we board a high-speed ferry for our crossing to Mackinac Island. This charming island is three miles long by two miles wide and transportation on the island is limited to carriage, bike, horse or foot! Our accommodations for the next two nights are at the Chippewa Hotel Waterfront on Mackinac Island.

Day 5 : Tour by Carriage

We depart our hotel this morning in horse drawn carriages for a tour of the island. The island’s Victorian architecture recalls a time of days gone by. Our carriage tour ends at the elegant Grand Hotel for a sumptuous Grand Buffet! This succulent feast includes garden fresh salads, savory cheeses, slow roasted meats, seafood and more than 20 varieties of fresh baked pastries. After lunch, there is time to unwind and enjoy the marvelous views of the Straits of Mackinac from the rocking chairs on the 660-foot porch. You may also browse several interesting areas of the hotel that are open to the public. The afternoon is free to relax, sightsee on our own or visit historic sites. You may choose to visit Fort Mackinac where costumed guides, memorabilia and original buildings recall military life during the War of 1812. Tonight we enjoy our second evening on the island.
