Outdoor adventuring isn’t for everyone. There are lose who enjoy accessibility, climate control, modern facilities, no mosquitoes…Door County has lots to offer the “Indoor Adventurer”! The Door County Peninsula settles down as soon as kids go back to school, but the day and night life stay active!
Mid-week is a perfect time to come and relax. With fewer families about, it is easier to enjoy what Door County has to offer those who like a slower pace. Restaurants serve their full menus, without the wait times peak season brings. The aisles of shops and galleries feel less crowded, allowing a longer look and a more leisurely shopping experience. The parks and beaches beckon with quiet benches and shady shores, only the gulls crying over head.
September weekdays are when the theaters of Door County really shine! Perfect for the cooling nights, The Northern Sky Theater moves indoors to the Door County Auditorium for their fall run of shows. The comfy seats of the auditorium are great for viewing the shows the theater puts on as well as the concert series sponsored by the auditorium. Some great folk and blues acts are on the show bill for this fall!
The many world class galleries located around the Door County Peninsula offer fine, folk, and decorative art. Pottery is as popular as paint, and the styles of the potters varied. Edgewood Orchard Gallery in Egg Harbor features art from around the world. Dazzling glass, jewelry, and paintings can be found in the artfully restored barns, while sculptures large and small can be found hiding in the beautiful gardens. Just down the road from the gallery is Hands On Art Gallery, where all ages can make art of their own! They even host adult nights with wine and refreshments!
The Waterbury Inn, nestled in the woods of quiet Ephraim, is centrally located to fantastic dining and shopping. Located right on the main highway 42, the Waterbury Inn is within walking distance to several fun shops and galleries, and a quick drive to all the others. September is a great time to visit Door County and the Waterbury Inn!
