Door County is a popular vacation and tourist destination located on a the Door Peninsula in Wisconsin. The peninsula is bordered on the east by Lake Michigan and the west by Green Bay. The county has more than 300 miles (480 km) of shoreline and is known by the locals and tourists alike as the Cape Cod of the Midwest.
Door County has 12 lighthouses. Most were built during the 1800s and are listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
Soil and weather conditions, warm days and cool nights influenced by Lake Michigan and Green Bay, have created an ideal environment for growing cherries. The history of cherry growing in the area dates back to the 1800s. Today with around 2,200 acres of cherry orchards and another 1,000 acres of apple orchards, Door County is filled with blossoms in the spring and is richly decorated with the fruits in the late summer and fall.
