DOOR COUNTY, Wis., Sept. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- As summer turns to fall, Wisconsin's bucolic Door County peninsula prepares for a celebration of culinary proportions complete with fresh local produce, bustling farm markets, foodie tours and harvest festivals set amidst a backdrop of beautiful fall colors.
An eight-week celebration, called So Delicious So Door County, explores all that is delicious on this 70-mile long sliver of land that stretches out into Lake Michigan. Visitor opportunities include traveling the Door County Wine Trail to sample selections from eight local wineries; sampling "Made in Door County" products such as locally caught smoked fish or products made of locally grown cherries and apples at over 30 local markets and specialty food stores; attending a cooking class; or picking your own pail of crunchy apples at a local orchard. View even more opportunities in a special menu available online from the Door County Visitor Bureau (DCVB).
The deliciousness of Door County isn't just limited to taste: the other four senses can also get in on the fun. Award winning professional theater, over 100 studios and art galleries and live music opportunities provide visual and auditory refreshment. The pleasant aromas of freshly baked goodies wafting from area bakeries or the memorable fragrance of fall treats served up at community harvest festivals keep the sense of smell smiling. While the feel of a cool fall breeze off the lake or the crunch of leaves under foot on an afternoon hike ensures inclusion for the sense of touch, too.
