Welcome to Door County!
While many relish the Door County peninsula as a vacation destination, it’s also known for its thriving business climate and the comfortable, casual lifestyle that it offers its lucky residents.
Door County's unique draw to residents and visitors alike is the perfect blend of natural beauty, culture and hospitality. The County is comprised of 19 municipalities, bordered by the waters of Green Bay to the west and Lake Michigan to the east. With over 250 miles of shoreline, 11 golf courses, 5 State Parks, 17 County Parks and a world-class cultural community, it is no wonder that so many decide to call this paradise their full-time home.
While tourism is the county's primary economic engine, the area offers a variety of employment opportunities. The City of Sturgeon Bay is home to manufacturing, shipbuilding and county government as well as many service businesses.
Five public school districts and six private schools serve Door County. Door County students consistently score above average in state testing. In addition to the excellent public and private schools the Northeast Wisconsin Technical College (NWTC) serves the area. The local campus is located in Sturgeon Bay and classes are available in multiple locations throughout Door County and via the Internet. University of Wisconsin Green Bay is located approximately 40 miles south of Door County.
