Dateline Door County, Wisconsin: A half marathon; a studio crawl; and your favorite restaurants are opening!

The High Point Inn is proud to announce that May has finally arrived to Ephraim and northern Door County! The grass is green, the air is warming. Bicycles dot the roads. People are walking with and without their dogs. It is a beauty to behold.

This first weekend of May brings the return of the Door County Half Marathon in Peninsula State Park. We at High Point Inn are so excited about the marathon we are one of two main lodging sponsors of this very popular event. It’s too late to register to take part in the marathon but you can come and cheer on the runners.

TR Pottery in Fish Creek, Off the Wheel Pottery in Egg Harbor, Plum Bottom Gallery in Egg Harbor, The Potters Wheel in Fish Creek, Ephraim Clayworks in Ephraim, Clay Bay Pottery in Ellison Bay, Gills Rock Stoneware in Ellison Bay, and Ellison Bay Pottery in Ellison Bay. Visit the gallery websites for directions to each artist’s studio.

More Door County restaurants open this weekend!
