Last one!


We visited Fish Creek today, this one has a wonderful beach to swim or sit and relax. Definitely one of my favorite beaches on the peninsula. Located in the heart of the northern Door peninsula, Fish Creek is home to the finest selection of accommodations, cuisine, shopping, the arts, and outdoor recreation. Downtown Fish Creek boasts an historic main street as well as attractive marinas, parks and beaches. It is located on Highway 42 along Green Bay.

The first settler of Fish Creek was Increase Claflin and his family circa 1844, but the village founder is considered to be entrepreneur Asa Thorp. Loggers and fishermen started settling in Fish Creek in 1853. Thorp owned much of the area's land by that year, and built Fish Creek's first dock in 1855. Fish Creek's oldest unchanged residence, the Alexander Noble House, was built in 1874 and today is on the National Register of Historic Places. By 1900, summer tourists were frequently visiting the village, and Fish Creek became a resort community.

It is going to be a hard choice to decide which one of these awesome villages is our favorite, this one is definitely at the top. Check back later for more from Door County.
