The stresses of urban living can take a toll on anyone. From unforgiving work hours to cramped living areas in high-rise condominiums, it is no wonder more and more people are seeking the simpler country life.
If you want to take a break from the concrete jungle but still want to enjoy the comforts of modern living, you can head to Fish Creek, Wisconsin and book a condo rental for the weekend. Rest and unwind amid a backdrop of trees, fishing spots, bike trails, and fresh air. You can lounge around and read while your kids explore trails and other outdoor adventures in the area.
What is there to see in Fish Creek?
Fish Creek is located in the Door County Peninsula, a tourist spot favored by residents of Illinois and Wisconsin. Its population swells during the summer due to the influx of travelers looking for outdoor activities. The area is filled with orchards, national parks and hiking trails, lighthouses, water sports, and fresh seafood. It is a great way for adults to reconnect with nature and enjoy the outdoors as they did as kids. For first timers, there are guided tours and groups that you can join to appreciate better what Door County has to offer.
Something for the homebody
The great outdoors and all its action-packed adventures are not for everyone, however. There will always be someone who would rather stay inside the condo or inn and do nothing. But fret not because Fish Creek lodgings offer top-notch amenities like pools, Jacuzzis, excellent restaurants, and even spas. You can also choose to chill with your family and friends in front of a gas fireplace or the garden patio, with hot cocoa and melted marshmallows in hand.
For those who enjoy the finer things in life, there are wine tasting sessions as well as productions at the Door Community Auditorium. If you love arts, you can also catch a play at the Peninsula Players Theater or a musical performance at the Birch Creek Music Center. Shopping for antiques is also a memorable experience at Egg Harbor, Ephraim, Sister Bay, and Ellison Bay. The latter specializes in pottery and stoneware.
Food is also plentiful in Fish Creek. Guests are encouraged to try the “fish boil,” a simple but hearty meal made from freshly caught white fish paired with onions and potatoes. The dish’s Scandinavian origins can be traced back to the first settlers in Door County. The meal is capped with a rich and decadent cherry pie. Fish boils are an integral part of the county’s tradition. It is a great way for tourists to interact with the locals and experience their culture.
Fish Creek offers guests the luxury of being able to sleep in, shop, and enjoy great meals in a relaxed, rural setting. It also gives thrill-seekers various options for adventure, both by land or by sea. Plan your next weekend getaway at Door County for the coming summer. It has everything you need to relax and recharge.
