Discover the true spirit of Door County.

Welcome to the Door County Coastal Byway

Door County’s Coastal Byway (DCCB)(Hwy.42/57), a Wisconsin Scenic Byway, stretches over 66 miles of Wisconsin’s beautiful Door Peninsula. It begins just north of the City of Sturgeon Bay, following State Highway 57 north along one side of the Peninsula to Northport and Gills Rock at the very tip, and then heads south on State Highway 42 back to the starting point.

The route offers a range of resources and activities with scenic vistas of Lake Michigan, the Bay of Green Bay and the Niagara Escarpment bluffs, as well as dense forest, agricultural lands, and quaint shore-side towns and villages.

DCCB features three state parks, ten county parks and several lighthouses. Towns and villages along the way offer retail shops, galleries, live music and theatre, cherry and apple orchards, boating, fishing, hiking, golfing and many other recreational activities.
