Door County, Wisconsin is frequently visited throughout the year, but its peak months are May and June. The peninsula is just northeast of Green Bay which makes it a great quick getaway location.
The area supposedly earned its name due to a significant amount of shipwrecks and accidents that kept happening around the area which lead the French to name the area: Port des Morts (Death’s door). The county, later on, took on the name by which it is currently known: Door County WI.
The vicinity was founded in 1851 and officially organized as a county in 1861. Its history as a tourist destination is almost as old, with the first ones arriving already in 1864 when the first resorts and hotels started opening.
Besides tourism, the area’s main industry was logging.
