Picturesque beauty blends with historic buildings in this lake-front town. Sturgeon Bay was once a vital shipping center that helped build up the state and the rest of the mid-west. The city has everything you might expect from a historic Lake Michigan town. From outdoor fun to historic tours, Sturgeon Bay is not lacking for fun and adventure.
Potawatomi State Park
Potawatomi State Park is a pristine 1,200-acre slice of nature nestled on the shore of Sturgeon Bay. Featuring rugged trails, rolling hills, and steep limestone cliffs, this park has something for people from every walk of life. The park honors the name of the Potawatomi natives who lived in the area long ago when settlers first arrived at the shores of Green Bay. The park features campsites, hiking trails, motorcycle trails, snowmobile trails, ATV/Offroading, boating, skiing, fishing, and hunting.
Door County Maritime Museum
North-eastern Wisconsin has a long rich history of being a vital hub on the Great Lakes shipping lanes. Once a thriving port for freight, coal, and logs, all that remains of this lost history is preserved in the Door County Maritime Museum. See how entire towns sprang up around the shipping industry and how Sturgeon Bay played a huge part in the manufacturing industry of the mid-west. The museum offers many interesting exhibits like the shipwreck exhibit where you can learn of the dangers that faced seamen on the Great Lakes and the ships that weren’t so lucky.
Visit the Cana Island Lighthouse
One of Door County’s most iconic landmarks is the Cana Island Lighthouse. For 150 years this beacon has helped seafarers find their way home from long voyages. You can take a ride out to the island and explore the 89-foot lighthouse and get a glimpse of what it was like for the lighthouse keeper and his family to live in such a remote and secluded area. You can even climb up to the top of the lighthouse and get one of the most spectacular views of the lake and the surrounding area that you can’t get anywhere else.
