A geographic quirk—70 north-south miles of narrow peninsula—means autumn stretches for weeks here. Fall color creeps down Door County like mercury in a thermometer, from Washington Island in mid- to late-September to Green Bay in October. This Circle Tour links galleries, orchards, lighthouses, state parks, shops and, yes, those famous fish boils, whose roaring fires and steaming potatoes are extra-enticing on chilly fall nights. Find maps at the visitors bureau.
Easy peeping If you would rather enjoy the scenery without focusing on the road ahead, a variety of trolley and boat tours highlights fall color.
