What’s it like to live in Door County?

Here’s what current residents say about living in Door County.

My husband and I chose to relocate to Door County from the Milwaukee area to allow us more time to enjoy the many outdoor activities that Door County offers, we enjoy spending our time outdoors, hiking, biking and fishing, as opposed to sitting in traffic. Additionally, we enjoy the more laid back and relaxed lifestyle and great close knit community that Sturgeon Bay offers.

Andrew & Kelsey Fox

Lydia and I chose to live Door County because of its unique location and experiences. This is a destination where you can have friends and family visit for vacations while we get to enjoy the amenities whenever we want. Door County is also a place where the residents care about their communities and they are passionate to keep it a welcoming place. We hope to enjoy this place for years to come.

Beau Bernhoft & Lydia Semo

I procured a position as a Tooling Design Engineer at WireTech and relocated to Sturgeon Bay from a large metropolitan area. It worked out great for me. I no longer spend hours commuting. Instead I spend that time biking and hiking in the State Park. The clean air and peaceful atmosphere help to keep my mind clear and I feel healthier.
