Fish Creek — 4 nights

Fish Creek is an unincorporated community located in Door County, Wisconsin, United States, within the town of Gibraltar and is located on Highway 42 along Green Bay.HistoryThe first settler of Fish Creek was Increase Claflin and his family circa 1844, but the village founder is considered to be entrepreneur Asa Thorp. Relax by the water at Schoolhouse Beach and Nicolet Bay Beach. Attractions like Peninsula State Park and Eagle Bluff Lighthouse make great kid-friendly stops. Go for a jaunt from Fish Creek to Washington Island to see Washington Island Stavkirke about 1h 20 min away. There's much more to do: identify plant and animal life at The Ridges Sanctuary, do a tasting at Door Peninsula Winery, get your game on at Pirate's Cove Mini Golf, and take in the exciting artwork at Ellison Bay Pottery Studios.

Door County owes its status as a top Midwest vacation destination to its 480 km (300 mi) of shoreline along Lake Michigan. Coupled with five scenic state parks, 11 lighthouses, and 80 cultural venues, the natural scenery dominates here. The region hosts several museums, theaters, and art galleries. Art classes and workshops serve as big draws throughout the year, while live music and plays fill the entertainment schedule.
