In Wisconsin, produce is everything. While Wisconsin is known for its dairy production, Door County, where Fish Creek is located, also produces a ton of cherries and white fish for the neighboring area.

During your visit to Fish Creek, be sure to check out the fantastic restaurants that serve sustainable and locally-grown ingredients. Then, head off for some entertainment with plays, museums, and of course outdoor activities.

The much-loved Northern Sky Theater has come a long way since it staged its first performance in the Peninsula State Park amphitheatre back in 1970. The first show was called Song of the Inland Seas, and was so well-received that the newly-formed 18-person Heritage Ensemble continued to stage their unique shows at the park for the next 20 years. The emphasis has always been on celebrating aspects of Midwestern folklore. In 2015 the company changed its name to Northern Sky Theater and acquired an additional indoor performance venue. Today visitors can look forward to at least 4 shows a year, 2 of which still take place in the original outdoor theater.
