Discover Fish Creek

Beautiful Fish Creek, located on DoorCounty’s Peninsula is one of the most picturesque places to visit in Wisconsin. Fish Creek is a small unincorporated community that brings in thousands of visitors to view its historical buildings, shops and scenery. Located off the shore of Green Bay and Lake Michigan, this scenic village has been rated as number one small town getaway destination in Midwest Living.

Established in 1857, Fish Creek’s heritage began with lumberjacks, farmers, and fishermen. The history has been preserved in its downtown buildings and hometown atmosphere. Walking tours, the trolley and horse-drawn carriages are available to view the history of this quaint village. Take a tour of nearby cherry and apple orchards where DoorCounty is well known for their apple and cherry pies, and DoorCounty wine.

Off the harbor, visitors can go boating, fishing and swimming. Or just relax at the public beach.

Enjoy the evening with a double feature at the The Skyway Drive-in Theater.

Another pretty place in Wisconsin. It looks nice and laid back there Sandy. All the snow I usually think about when I hear the word Wisconsin is melting away in my mind. :-)
