Gills Rock Maritime Museum – Deaths Door

For the Fourth of July every year we head up to Gills Rock. If your not familiar with Gills Rock it is in Wisconsin and is one of the many tourist attractions in Door County. You can take the ferry across from Gills Rock to Washington Island. There are a few shops and a park. There are boat launches and a maritime museum. Now Gills Rock is a small town but let me tell you this town has AMAZING fireworks every year. Just when you think it’s the grand finale it’s not. I am blown away each year with the fireworks.



If you are heading to Door County and looking for something the whole family can enjoy, I highly suggest checking out Egg Harbor Fun Park and Gravity Trails. There is something there for the whole family to enjoy. You can find gem mining, zip lines, go karts, arcade, mini golf, kayaking, and batting cages. There are different packages that you can choose from as well.


The Ridges Sactuary – Must See

Yesterday we took the kids as a family to The Ridges Sanctuary in Baileys Harbor, Wisconsin. This was also spot lighted in Family Fun Magazine of their current issue as one of the places to go in Door County. It consists of 40 acres and has many different trails you can take to walk on.

The forests and wetlands here are just breathtaking. There is over 475 plant species, including 25 of 40 species of orchards that are native to the state. What I didn’t know and found really interesting was it has the largest population of the federally endangered Hine’s Emerald Dragonfly and 60 species of migrating and nesting birds. You can also see the historic Bailey’s Harbor Range Lights, a rare type of lighthouse. I think we saw the lighthouse driving by on the other end of the site.

Red Hat Grammies Are Awesome – A Wonder Breakfast In Door County

Today is the last Monday at the end of the month. Well that means it’s Red Hatter Breakfast Time! No I am not old enough to wear a red hat. However, I can wear a pink hat. I have been with the Red Hatters now for well almost 4 or 5 years. Let me tell you they are a blast! Lots of fun things to do. There is never a dull moment.
