Door County Lighthouse Walk Weekend

Annual Door County Lighthouse Walk - May 17th-18th!

WE love, love, love lighthouses! This event is the perfect time of the year to explore Door County with your children.

"A self-guided, county-wide tour of 6 mainland lighthouses. Walk the grounds and soak in the history of Door County’s fabled lighthouses. Boat tours to and around island lighthouses." Walking to Cana Island across the rock causeway is especially exciting!

Some of the featured lighthouses are only open to the public during this annual event.

Tickets go on sale March 3rd. More information:

While visiting the D.C. area, for an interesting change of pace in accommodations, stay in a YURT!

YURT = "Based on ancient Mongolian tents, circular yurts have been modernized for fun and comfort. The reinforced lattice fir walls are surrounded by canvas/vinyl fabric with rafters reaching to a center dome skylight and heavy-duty vinyl roof." Sleeps 5 people. - from Tranquil Timbers website.

We will be staying in a Yurt in Sturgeon Bay's Tranquil Timbers during Lighthouse Walk weekend.
