As the weather heats up, so does our capacity for romance. We’ve all heard the iconic song from the musical, Grease. Summer is a time for love to flourish, and as your relaxation headquarters, we’d like to fan the flames with our list of the top 5 romantic places in Sturgeon Bay!

Romantic Sturgeon Bay Views

More than just a stay!

Our first few flirtatious locations come with incredible outdoor scenery. After all, nothing fuels a relationship better than a unique, shared experience.


1. Potawatomi State Park’s Observation Tower

Aptly named for the tribe which originally inhabited the area, the name Potawatomi roughly translates to “Keepers of the Flame.” What better place to kindle (or rekindle) some romance than here?

This vast state park consists of over 1,200 acres of rolling hills and limestone cliffs. The observation tower stands 75 feet above the ground, providing a panoramic view of surrounding scenery for 16 square miles.

Climb the tower steps with your significant other, and enjoy the romantic vista from atop the observation platform for a truly unforgettable experience.


2. Sherwood Point & Sturgeon Bay Canal Lighthouses

These historic beacons stand tall on the Sturgeon Bay shoreline. We recently went into some detail about the three Sturgeon Bay lighthouses, and there are few sights more romantic than the silhouette of a Door County beacon with a backdrop of a brilliant, summer sunset.

These lighthouses are only available for public tour during the Door County Lighthouse Festival, which is held in early June. You’ll have the chance to learn the unique history of these structures, tour the lighthouses’ grounds, and daydream about what life must’ve been like for the lone keepers.


3. Romantic Parks & Beaches

Forget the heights because there are plenty of lovely ground-level views to be had in Sturgeon Bay, as well.

Take a romantic stroll or refreshing swim at Sunset Park. Here you’ll find a walking/bicycling trail, public beach, and sunset views that will melt your heart.

Explore nearby Otumba Park to find more of the same. Enjoy a romantic picnic, take a shoreline walk down lover’s lane, and lose yourselves in breathtaking bay shore views.


There’s More to Love Indoors

Romantic Indoor Venues

The summer sun may help to ignite a romantic relationship, but Sturgeon Bay has several great indoor venues that will help keep it alive.


4. Local Wineries

Tour the modern grounds of Door 44, one of Sturgeon Bay’s most popular vineyards. Sample a world-class wine selection, and unwind on the relaxing patio of this Door County favorite, located just off Hwy 42/57.

If you’re looking for a more intimate, casual tasting environment, stop by Red Oak Vineyard. This Sturgeon Bay gem provides a lovely, eclectic barrel room, where many variations of French and German-style wines are produced. Keep your flame well-lit in this unique setting.


5. Of course, Stay at Bay Shore Inn

With a range of romantic accommodations from spacious suites to cozy cottages, we’re your Summer Love-Inn.

Take advantage of breathtaking sunset views on our private beach, at our outdoor fire pit, in a paddle boat, or on your own private balcony. Enjoy our amenities, including indoor/outdoor pools, a luxurious hot tub, or a couple’s massage.

There’s no better experience in Door County than a relaxing, romantic getaway at the Bay Shore Inn.

We’re looking forward to your next visit. Book your romantic getaway today!
