Yes, Fourth of July in Door County promises to be a blast — because when the day winds down, the night winds up and before you know it, the evening is filled with dazzling displays of flashing fireworks and ear-covering booms.
According to Christine Nesheim, former reporter for the Door County Advocate, you'll find the fun in just about every corner of magical Door County. "It doesn't matter where you go to watch the fireworks, because there's always a reflection of the fireworks on the lakes or bays," she explains. "It's like two shows going on at once."
As an experienced Door County fireworks observer, Nesheim recommends the show in Baileys Harbor — whether you're sitting on the beach or higher up on the hill, you'll have a great view. "With the reflection of fireworks off the water and the silhouette of the sailboats at night, it's something unique to Door County," she says.
The fact is, every community up and down charming Door County celebrates Independence Day in much the same, unique way — making it a proud, patriotic, happy, respectful, fun, loud (and sometimes a little crazy) three-day holiday. It's a slice of American pie — in our case, apple or cherry pie.
