Here at Door County Adventure Center, we offer quite a few packages that allow you to choose two different adventures and by doing so, you save money! You can of course mix and match between our locations, so that your adventures with us are tailored to your liking. One thing we personally don’t offer, but still coordinate on is Segway tours. We work with a couple guys, Nick and Rick, who have their own separate Segway companies. If you book with either of them and then with us, or vice versa, you “Segway and save!” The Segway tours offered by Nick are Cave & Dunes, Sturgeon Bay, and Egg Harbor and the tour offered by Rick is Rowley’s Bay (Off-Road Tour). The tours normally last an hour and a half to two hours. All of these tours, as you may have noticed, are within all of our locations we have at Door County Adventure Center! Nick does have specific instructions on where to meet for each of his tours, which is on our website under each of the packages. Rick has a trailer that he sets up right next to our building across the street from Rowley’s Bay Resort.
Riding on a Segway is definitely just as fun as it sounds. From my own personal experience, it’s actually not as hard as it may seem. It’s not necessarily like riding a bike, but there are handles to hold onto. In order to steer, you move the handles side to side as if your hands are sliding across a horizontal pole. It’s important to avoid trying to turn, going back to the feeling of riding a bike. Your balance plays a key role in controlling the Segway’s speed. If you lean forward on your toes, you are going to go faster and if you lean back on your heels, you will slow down or even come to a stop. The feeling is similar to a hoverboard, if you have heard of those, but with more stability since you have something to hold onto. Anyone can ride a Segway and if you are a beginner don’t worry, the appropriate training will be provided and you will catch on fast! Once you get used to the feeling, it will come pretty natural after a while.
So, if you are at a loss of what to do or just want to cross it off your list, riding a Segway is the perfect answer. Don’t forget to bundle with Door County Adventure Center to save money and experience more fun!
Door County is home to all different types of fruit wineries. Located up and down the entire peninsula, many of these wineries have even been passed along through generations.
When looking at some of these wineries a little closer, it is noticed that many of them are located close to our DC Adventure's Egg Harbor Beach location! Relaxing with a glass of wine after a long day at the beach sounds the perfect day! Listed below are just some of the popular wineries in Door County.
Lautenbach’s Orchard Country Winery & Market
First is Lautenbach’s Orchard Country Winery & Market, located in the village of Fish Creek, Wisconsin. Fish Creek is the next town north of Egg Harbor when traveling on Highway 42. The winery is located on 100 acres of land that have been in the Lautenbach family since 1955. Lautenbach's Orchard Country Winery itself was established in 1985.
The Lautenbach’s make their wine from a variety of different fruits that they grow within their property. These fruits include cherries, apples, grapes, raspberries, and pears. Their family also operates a farm market that sells everything from pies to cheese!
Door Peninsula Winery
Next is Door Peninsula Winery is located in Carlsville, Wisconsin, a small town in between Sturgeon Bay and Egg Harbor. Located right off of Highway 42! The winery was established in 1974 in a two-room schoolhouse! As the years went on and the business grew, they eventually had to expand to a larger facility. Today, they have over 60 different wine selections!
Door 44 Winery
44 Wineries is a small chain of wineries within the state of Wisconsin. Door 44 Winery is a 6 acre vineyard located in Sturgeon Bay, while Parallel 44 is a 10 acre vineyard located in Kewaunee. This winery is also along Highway 42, but located south of Carlsville. An interesting fact about these wineries is that they are both located within the 44th parallel north of the equator. The northern circle of latitude also goes through places like the Mediterranean Sea and Europe. Prime wine country!
Stone’s Throw Winery
Located in Baileys Harbor, Wisconsin is Stone’s Throw Winery, one of the few wineries close to our Rowelys Bay location! This winery is unique in comparison to others because they use California grown grapes to make their wine. In 1993, founder Russel Turco thought of the idea to use grapes from California and bring them to Door County to make wine!
