How I Spent My Summer Vacation: Door County, Cape Cod of the Midwest
One of the best things about Door County is that you can move from town to town at will. Each charming little town—Egg Harbor, Fish Creek, Sister Bay, Ephraim, Ellison Bay, and Gill’s Rock—is barely ten minutes apart, so you don’t have to stay in one place, since there are so many fun things to do. But these are the musts: “Wilson’s Ice Cream Parlor” in Ephraim, a tradition in Door County since 1906; the “City Farmer” store in Ephraim, for beautiful furniture and home accessories; “JJ’s LaPuerta” (the Port) in Sister Bay for the best whitefish and fried lake perch in town, my favorite; and “Pelletier’s” Restaurant in Fish Creek for a great fish boil (whitefish, boiled potatoes and onions, bread and a big piece of homemade cherry pie for dessert, using Door County cherries, of course).
And you can imagine such a beautiful place like this makes a perfect environment for a romantic story. Each of the places named would make a great setting for your characters to live, love, and laugh in. In one of my previous books, “The Time of the 11,” soon to be available on Amazon.com, I set one portion of the book in Door County, but I plan to set a future book completely in this beautiful place.
