Flames Fly High at Door County’s Traditional Fish Boil

Over the past few years, we’ve heard all about Traverse City and the rest of Northern Michigan as being a great lakeside summer destination, but few are aware of the peninsula that sits directly west across Lake Michigan in Wisconsin known as Door County. Right, we know what you’re thinking. The first thing that comes to mind when someone says “Wisconsin” is winter, and you can get cheese in any supermarket, thank you very much.

This mentality is precisely what makes Door County so enjoyable to visit, the fact that it crushes all your preconceived notions of what Wisconsin is as a state and travel destination. What you’ll find during the summer months is a bed-and-breakfast paced community on a peninsula that is comprised of a series of small towns tucked in between dairy farms, wineries, and cherry orchards.

While there are a few bigger properties, small inns and B&Bs are the way to go to soak up the area’s personality. One that we can recommend firsthand is the White Gull Inn in Fish Creek, which hosts traditional fish boils four nights a week throughout the summer months. As you can see from the photos, the cooking process is quite a show.
