Door County might be bustling in the summer, but winter on the peninsula can be just as magical and romantic. Everything feels like a more intimate experience when you rent a cabin or special room in one of the many bed-and-breakfasts throughout the county. Grab a glass of wine, have a romantic dinner, and settle in for a sunset overlooking the bluffs on the bayside.

Make the most of the cold this time of year by strolling through the breathtaking Lake Geneva Ice Castles. Get your tickets ahead of time to plan this must-see weekend. Really want to wow your partner? Warm up (and get pampered) in the spa at the Grand Geneva. That’s a level of relaxation that won’t wear off once you get back home!

Anywhere in Bayfield County can be a great getaway for those who want to cuddle up by the fire, take in the views of Lake Superior, or be a little more adventurous. Experience the relaxed pace of this quaint harbor town or kayak your way through the Apostle Island Ice Caves, hit the slopes at Mt. Ashwabay, or trek through Chequamegon National Forest
**Note: please confirm the Ice Caves are open and welcoming visitors before arrival
