Are you in the mood for a romantic winter getaway? Yes, Valentines Day is over and spring is just around the corner, but it’s not too late to steal away for a romantic getaway. If the appeal of snuggling up next to a crackling fire with a bottle of fine wine warms your heart then you may want to check out the special deals Door County, Wisconsin offers with their Nature of Romance package deals through March 31st.
Located in Wisconsin’s northeast corner, the Door Peninsula juts out 70 miles into Lake Michigan. With its three hundred miles of shoreline, eleven lighthouses, awe-inspiring natural beauty, and enveloping charm, Door County is often referred to as ‘The Cape Cod’ of the Midwest. With a wide array of unique shops, boutiques, art galleries, museums, and eateries, Door County offers plenty for visitors in addition to enjoying the many outdoor activities.
