7 Door County
Gathering & Reunion Ideas

Imagine a class reunion that begins with a kayak adventure at sunrise. A family reunion topped off with a legendary Door County fish boil. A group of your girlfriends golfing some of the prettiest courses in the Midwest. Or, the company of your comrades aboard a fishing charter, reliving the good ol’ days and spinning new tales.

As you will discover, Door County—with its beauty, endless activities, and outstanding lodging choices for all to enjoy—is one of the most popular reunion destinations in Wisconsin. So if you’re considering “gathering the troops” in our picturesque neck of the woods, you’ll want to give yourself time to plan for every activity—and every impromptu surprise!

It’s all here, awaiting your reunion in Door County. For planning assistance, please email groups@doorcounty.com.

1. Door County Food Tour

Visitors are flocking to Door County to experience what has rapidly become a foodie paradise. Plan a food-filled weekend of tasting throughout the county, hitting fine-dining hot spots, great pub grub, and al fresco patio crawling in sun-soaked villages throughout the area. 


2. Door County Beer, Wine, and Cider Tour

OK, you may not need to hit all three, but you could make a weekend out of each if you want to! Taste the best of local beverages with a group tour (trolley anyone?) with stops at seven wineries, three breweries, one distillery, and a cider mill. Just make sure you hydrate!


3. Get on the Water

Nothing will make a Door County gathering more memorable and complete than a few hours on the water. Rent a boat, book a sunset sail or boat tour, or plan a group kayak tour to see Door County from atop our most famous features—the waves of Lake Michigan. 


4. Hit the Links

If golf is your passion, then Door County is your destination. Eleven courses dot the peninsula and Washington Island, giving you options for a morning tea-time or a golf-filled weekend on courses, which offers some of the most stunning views in the Midwest. Find your course here. 


5. Run or Ride

Door County has become a hotbed for silent sports and now hosts more than a dozen runs and bicycle rides throughout the spring, summer, and fall. Many families and groups have made these the centerpiece of annual get-togethers—a healthy option with a dose of competition. 


6. Festival Focus

If you want to make sure there’s entertainment and then some for your crew, pick a festival weekend to regroup. Festivals are great times to get the band back together, with local cuisine and spirits, live music, and family-friendly activities.


7. Art and Shopping Weekend

Door County is home to scores of galleries and artist studios, boutiques and gift shops, specialty food stores, and more where you can find great new pieces for home. You could also consider scheduling a group outing to try your own hands at making unique pieces of art.
