Plan the ultimate Door County girls’ trip this summer

Stay at Ephraim Shores Resort with your favorite group of ladies

Spring is a great time to gather a bunch of ladies and head up to the peninsula for the ultimate Door County girls’ trip!

Whether your group has a jam-packed, detailed itinerary of things to do or simply want to relax, unwind, and see where your trip takes you, Door County is a great place to be for both ways of traveling — and Ephraim Shores Resort is an ideal homebase.

Ephraim Shores: the best place to stay for a Door County girls’ trip

Here are just a few of the reasons why you’ll want to consider Ephraim Shores Resort for your Door County girls’ trip.

  • Several room types to accommodate any group and budget, including one- and two-bedroom suites and rooms with double queen-sized beds,
  • A private sundeck across the street from the resort — a great place to watch the sunset, read a book, or have a glass of wine before heading out to dinner,
  • Located in the heart of Ephraim — we’re walking distance to shops, restaurants, and activities.

While you’ll no doubt want to explore all the towns, villages, and communities that make up the Door County peninsula, there’s plenty to do within a few minutes’ walk — or a short drive from Ephraim Shores. Here are a few suggestions for activities if you want to stay close to the village for your Door County girls’ trip activities:

Get Outside
For the nature lovers in your group, Ephraim Shores Resort is just a three-minute drive from Peninsula State Park. Considered to be Wisconsin’s most complete park with a sand beach, hiking and biking trails, the picturesque Eagle Bluff Lighthouse, and plenty of shoreline — eight miles, in fact — to explore, Peninsula State Park is a must-visit. Be sure to snap some photos at the Park’s most scenic spots — Sven’s Bluff, the Eagle Panorama, and of course, Eagle Tower.

The park is also home to the summer stage of Northern Sky Theater, an original musical theater company that’s a Door County tradition.

Hit The Links
If golf is in your Door County girls’ weekend plans, it’s worth mentioning that Peninsula State Park Golf Course was recently rated a 4-star golf course by Golf Digest. The 18-hole course offers breathtaking views of Eagle Harbor and glimpses of the Niagara Escarpment — and there’s also a six-hole learning course for anyone in your group that wants to practice a little first.

Golf vacations in Door County are incredibly popular — explore the peninsula’s ten other golf courses as well.

Treat Yourself
No Door County girls’ trip is complete without shopping, and your group will enjoy exploring the many boutiques, galleries, and studios Ephraim has to offer. Some of our favorites include Sip, a combination boutique/eatery where you can browse home decor while sipping a latte or enjoying lunch; Vintique, a place for in-style home decor, curated vintage, and unique gifts; and Fine Line Designs Gallery, an art gallery with work from over 90 unique artists.

Dine & Wine
Finally, nothing says “Door County girls’ trip” like treating yourself to a great meal — or several! Start your day by having breakfast at Sunset Harbor Grill, the restaurant above Ephraim Shores Resort with the best water view in Door County.

For lunch, head to The Chef’s Hat for a tasty wrap or sandwich, or Klaud’s Kitchen for a pizza to share. Pearl Wine Cottage is the place for delicious pre-dinner snacks and a wine flight, and from there, it’s a short walk over to The Fashionable (a new restaurant in the former Trixie’s space, by the same owners!) or The Old Post Office Restaurant for dinner. For dessert? An ice cream cone or sundae from Wilson’s Ice Cream, of course!

No matter what plans are in store for your Door County girls’ trip, we know that you’ll have a great time in Door County, connecting with your friends and making new memories. Ephraim Shores Resort can’t wait to welcome you and your favorite ladies this summer!
