“look mom, no hands!”

I enjoyed my first ever segway ride this past Monday.  Friends who work at the English Inn, and I treated our beloved English Inn compadre to a segway tour through Peninsula State Park for his 17th birthday.  The tour, lead by Segway the Door tour guide Linda, was super helpful getting us comfortable on the segway in the beginning, helping us through some of the more difficult terrain, and leading us through the park and highlighting great vistas.  It was a wonderful and fun way to explore the park.  My favorite part was sighting a plethera of Door County wildflowers dotting the roadways: trilliums, forget-me-knots, and lily of the valley.

To see the peninsula from a different perspective, try something new and tour the peninsula on a segway. Segway the Door tours also have tours in Bailey’s Harbor, Egg Harbor, Elison Bay, Sturgeon Bay, and Cavepoint in Jacksonport (can’t wait to go explore Cavepoint on a segway).

Door County Wildflower Report: Purple Phlox along Beach Rd. in Sister Bay


One of the most delightful things about spring, summer and fall hiking and biking on the back roads of Door County, are the constantly changing colors in the fields you pass by. It got us thinking that we needed to add a new category to our blog (drum roll). So here it is…the newest addition to the Door County High Points blog is our weekly wildflower report – in season of course. Today’s wildflower sighting is Purple Phlox -  spotted during a bike ride on beautiful Beach Road in Sister Bay.

Wildflowers are just one of the many reasons to visit the High Point Inn in Ephraim. Contact us and we will share more reasons with you!
