  1. "I think Door County Navigator is a great site. The most useful part, to me, is all of the reviews for restaurants and hotels. Your reviews have never steered me wrong. I enjoy the way "Fresh Paint on the Door" allows me to stay in touch with what's new." - Lori B.

Door County:  From A to Z!
This month's feature: P and Q

By Donna Marie Pocius
Special to  

The "Door County: From A to Z" series continues this month with more ideas for enjoying the Peninsula.

Peninsula State Park is not only for campers and hikers. It's also for golfers, who play the Peninsula State Park Golf Course.  Oh, and travelers must take a hard look at quarry park.
Peninsula State Park Golf Course: This 18-hole course is part of Peninsula State Park and offers golfers well-maintained fairways as well as spectacular views of the Niagara Escarpment and forests of white cedar, oak, beech and maple trees. 

Don't miss historical points of interest including a 40-foot memorial pole standing at the ninth fairway. It's dedicated Newport Resort Banner to the Potawatomi Nation. They occupied Door County in the 1800s. Nearby is a large marker dedicated to Chief Kahquados, the last chief of Potawatomi Nation.
Golfers enjoy teeing off from one hole on a Door County cliff and traversing down about 60 feet from there. Players also have an opportunity to ring a course bell, signaling to others they are out of range and it's OK for a tee off.
The course, 9890 Shore Rd., Ephraim, has a restaurant, pro shop, putting practice green, club rentals and offers golf lessons.  It's within Peninsula State Park, which is dubbed "Wisconsin's most complete park." Along with the golf course, it has 468 campsites, a sand beach, biking and hiking trails, a lighthouse and eight miles of shoreline.

Quarry County Park:  Olde Stone Quarry County Park is a relatively new park. It was completed in August 2006 and sits on nine acres at 4879 Bay Shore Drive (Cty. Rd. B) in Sturgeon Bay.

Check out the stunning use of stone. Facilities include a boat launch, fishing pier, pavilion, picnic area and parking. Celebrate Door County's geology by visiting this county park. 
 Something to do:    
Concerts, plays and more take stage at Door Community Auditorium  

By Donna Marie Pocius
Special to
Door Community Auditorium (DCA) in Fish Creek is staging a wide variety of concerts, musicals and events now through March. Take a look at what the auditorium is saying about upcoming events:

The Peninsula Musical Festival is concluding its annual festival with classical music concerts at DCA through Aug. 22. For tickets and details, contact Peninsula Music Festival, 920/854-4060.

The Jayhawks, 7 p.. Aug. 24. The Jayhawks created a musical blend that "combines elegant folk-rock of the Byrds, adventurousness of Buffalo Springfield and soaring harmonies of Beach Boys."

Lumberjacks in Love (a DCA community partner event with Northern Sky Theater) Sept. 4 through Oct. 17. The story surrounds four burly lumberjacks who live in a state of manly bliss at the Haywire Lumber Camp in northern Wisconsin. Then, a mail order bride interrupts life as they know it. 

Scaryoke, 7 p.m. Oct. 31. DCA bills Scaryoke as a "family-friendly Halloween event that audiences won't soon forget." People are encouraged to come dressed as a favorite performer, and prizes will be awarded for best costume and karaoke performance as well as best group, best lyric/costume combo and more.

The Wood Brothers, 7 p.m. Nov. 5. Oliver and Chris Wood have joined forces with Jano Rix. Together, the trio shuffles between bluesy country and swampy fun with harmonies, acoustic guitar, upright bass and percussion. Scandinavian Lodge Banner
Cantus: Voices of Christmas, 7 p.m. Nov. 28. In Voices of Christmas, the men of Cantus combine the words, stories and wisdom of people from all walks of life with music that is sure to awaken the holiday spirit, DCA reports. The vocal ensemble will offer old and new carols and other holiday favorites.

Play It Forward for the Holidays, 7 p.m. Dec. 19. The Play it Forward concert series benefits regional, national and international causes selected by the performers. Door County performers come together to present holiday classics and inspiring original songs.

Masters of the Fiddle, 7 p.m. Feb. 13. Natalie MacMaster and Donnell Leahy, celebrated fiddlers, perform fiddle-driven music, dance and song while making French, Celtic, bluegrass and Cajun styles their own. They will be joined by pianists Mac Morin and Erin Leahy. 

Blaze the Show, 7 p.m. March 1. Blaze is a high-energy, non-stop street and break dance show, DCA reports. The dozen-plus Blaze dancers specialize in breaking, tapping, popping, locking and hip hop. They have appeared with performers including Madonna, Rihanna, Sean Paul and Mohombi.

Here are some Door County Happenings! 

The Door County cherry season has begun! Cherries are ripe for picking and fresh for purchasing. Harvest times vary in county bayside and lakeside regions. 

Here are some more new businesses in Egg Harbor: Cappaert Contemporary Gallery, Grumpy's Ice Cream & Root Beer and Dancin' on the Door.

Clark's Bar and Family Restaurant is the new name for the 131 W. Main St., Forestville, business formerly known as Tosty's Bar and Restaurant. The business has new owners. Egg Harbor Lodge Banner
Funky Cookie Studio is a new business in Sister Bay selling handmade, hand-rolled and hand-cut cookies that are also artfully decorated by owner Jill Wettstein. The location at 10590 Country Walk Drive, Sister Bay, is also home for the business, FlourGirl Patissier. 

Sourced is a new Sturgeon Bay business located in the space formerly occupied by the Greco Gallery at 24 N. Third Ave. Sourced reportedly sells handmade, found and recycled objects for home (lights, furniture and more) created by its owner Katie Starr. Some of the artists formerly represented by Greco Gallery also have work on display. 

A gas station/convenience store is being constructed at the corner of Hwy. 42 and Monument Point Rd., just north of Cty. I near Carlsville. It will be owned by Jandu Petroleum and is expected to open in November.
