Choosing overnight accommodations that keep bees on the property can have some sweet benefits: You might get a taste of the honey those bees produce when you order a breakfast biscuit, salad dressed with house-made vinaigrette, glazed veggies or meats, or even a cocktail at the on-site restaurant or bar.

Boiled Over By Fish

Welcome to the Door County fish boil, a Wisconsin tradition that has prevailed over time and is still a big part of the local fabric of the community. Driving around Sturgeon Bay, Egg Harbor, Fish Creek, Ephraim or Ellison Bay, signs for fish boils abound. You can experience a fish boil at many area restaurants.
