Make Door County’s Peninsula Pub part of your New Year’s Resolution


New Year’s Resolutions are filled with thoughts of working out, eating better, making time for the family, and maybe running a half marathon – if you’re got spare time. While these are all noble pursuits, why not pursue something tasty and delicious – something located in Door County that can get your New Year off to a great start? Head to the Peninsula Pub in Egg Harbor for their burger of the day and a Bloody Mary to wash it down.

The slogan of the Peninsula Pub is “People Pleasing Pub with Personality Plus.” and owners Kyle and Faye Blank take this slogan seriously. While a burger and a “Bloody” may not sound like conventional New Year’s eve fare, we think conventional needs to be tossed to the wind sometimes. Plus this is no ordinary burger and cocktail combo. The Peninsula Pub offers a special burger of the day. And we guarantee that burger (like no other) is not for the faint of heart. I suggest you take on the burger of the day. For as a Scottish friend likes to remind me “the stuffed feeling in your stomach is reward for a well done meal.”

In addition to their great burgers, the PenPub has been voted Door County’s favorite Friday fish fry by Door County Magazine readers.  Check out their menu and while you’re there, say hi to one of the owners – High Point Inn’s own fabulous Faye Blank!

A day in the life of a Door County Autumn Mid-Week Guest….


Autumn weekdays in Door County are something to be treasured. The beauty is the same but the setting offers a friendly but relaxed attitude. There is something to be said about getting a table right away at Al Johnson’s and not having to salivate while your watching other people with their pancakes.

However, just because the hustle and bustle is gone doesn’t mean there are any less activities going on!

After waking up to a great nights sleep at High Point Inn a crisp autumn morning greets you while you brew your first morning coffee. The leaves changing on the trees look particularly beautiful this morning so you decide to head to Newport State Park for a peaceful walk. The trails are quieter there but no less impressive than Peninsula State Park.

After your hike you’re feeling relaxed and a bit more stimulated. You’re stomach is growling and only The Viking Grill can satisfy it! You drive back south and stop in for some fuel for the day’s activities.

Traffic has slowed down which makes traveling between towns and villages much faster! It’s a secret only the locales know. You’re able to hit more shops and galleries than when you visit in the summer. Which is great for you! Maybe not so much for your partner. You decide to reward them with a tasty burger and a Wisconsin beer at the Cornerstone Pub in Baileys Harbor.

You’ve had a full day of activities but aren’t done yet! You decide to head back to High Point Inn for a wee nap. Don’t forget you’re on vacation! You deserve a nap.

This evening you and your partner are going to Peninsula Players to see their fall show “Miracle on South Division Street”. The play is under cover so there is no need to worry about rain! However, before you head there you drop in to Mr. Helsinki’s for a few appetizers and drinks. The atmosphere is great, you could sit there all night but there is a play to be seen!

You’ve had a fun packed and full day in Door County and now it’s off to bed! It’s a good thing you’re staying at High Point Inn! You aren’t sure what adventures you want to get up to tomorrow. You’re on vacation though and there is nothing wrong with sleeping in and enjoying the amenities High Point Inn has to offer!

Dare to write
Of days gone by
On this Door Peninsula
Remember well the memories

Cherry picking it may be
Or playing on the beach
Under trees within the park
Nature at its best
Tell a tale of Door County
You may soon impress!

Good luck to everyone and be sure to tell your friends and family!
