Discover the true spirit of Door County

Welcome to the Door County Coastal Byway

Door County's Coastal Byway (DCCB)(Hwys 42/57), a National and Wisconsin Scenic Byway, stretches across 66 miles of Wisconsin's beautiful Door Peninsula. The scenic route 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 turning south onto State Highway 42 back to Sturgeon Bay.

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 theater, cherry and apple orchards, boating, fishing, hiking, golfing and boundless opportunities for silent sports and your favorite recreational activities.
