Door County has miles and miles of coastline, 300 miles actually, and each Door County town and village on the water offer a unique coastline experience. So where do you choose to book your next summer vacation?
Ephraim Shores Resort is a centrally located Ephraim resort on the water that offers easy access to all of Door County. It’s right in the middle of the peninsula on the bay side, nestled in between Fish Creek and Sister Bay, that allows you to explore all Door County has to offer.
Easy access locations from your Ephraim resort
Only a 10 minute drive south of Ephraim Shores Resort is Fish Creek. This town is one of the more touristy areas in Door County, offering numerous unique shops, restaurants, and galleries to enjoy. At night, you can’t miss the double feature at Skyway Drive-In Theatre in Fish Creek. And once you’re done, it’s just a short drive back to your Ephraim resort.
A (scenic) 10 minute drive north of Ephraim is the quaint, up-and-coming Sister Bay. Sister Bay’s marina and beach are fun for the whole family. Restaurants like Al Johnson’s with goats on the roof provide a restaurant experience you’ll make a new tradition. This village is one to unwind in, while enjoying the natural beauty of Door County.
Drive 25 minute north of Ephraim and take the ferry to get to Washington Island, the largest Door County island. Washington Island deserves a day trip during your next Ephraim resort stay. Check out Schoolhouse Beach, the pebble beach that is as photogenic as it is great for swimming, Fragrant Isle, a lavender farm and shop with more than 30,000 lavender plants, and the numerous museums on the island.
If you hop on WI-57 and drive 15 minutes East from Ephraim, you’ll find yourself in Baileys Harbor, a peaceful Door County town on the coast of Lake Michigan. There are endless opportunities in nature, and locally crafted beer for when you’re done, at Door County Brewing Co. While in Baileys Harbor, PC Junction is a must with the family. This restaurant serves your food by train, and while kids enjoy the playground, adults can enjoy the bar.
Although every part of Door County has something to offer, nothing compares to an Ephraim resort with a waterfront view and sunsets. At the end of the day, no matter where you explore in Door County, it is only a short drive back to your home base, Ephraim Shores Resort. Grab a loved one and book your next stay with us.
