Travel directions to Peninsula School of Art.

 

Travel

Door County is a region in the "left thumb" of Wisconsin - the small land mass projecting into the water from the east-central side of the state. Fish Creek, in the center of Door County and location of Peninsula School of Art, is about a three hour drive from Milwaukee and a five hour drive north from Chicago or east from Minneapolis.

 

By Car

From Chicago:

Take I-94 to Milwaukee, then I-43 north to Green Bay. Take Hwy 57 north to Sturgeon Bay, then Highway 42 north from Sturgeon Bay. The School is located 25 miles north of Sturgeon Bay at the north end of Fish Creek, 500 feet east of Highway 42 on County Hwy F. Distance to Fish Creek: five hours.

From Minnesota and Twin Cities:

Travel east on I-94 toward Eau Claire. Take Exit 52 onto Hwy. 29. Merge onto Hwy. 51-S toward I-39. Take Exit 187 onto Hwy. 29 toward Green Bay. Merge onto I-41 in Green Bay.

By Air

Traveling to Door County by air is more convenient than most travelers realize. The traffic-free drive from Austin Straubel Airport in Green Bay to the heart of Fish Creek takes about an hour and twenty minutes. 

Three international airports in Wisconsin can serve as your gateway to Door County. The nearest is the Austin Straubel Airport in Green Bay (one hour drive to Sturgeon Bay). The Appleton Airport is the next closest (one hour and twenty minutes to Sturgeon Bay). Milwaukee’s General Mitchell Airport (two hours and thirty minutes to Sturgeon Bay) is the largest of the three. All three airports offer car rentals on site.

The county does have two smaller airports, Cherryland Airport in Sturgeon Bay and the Ephraim-Gibraltar Airport in Fish Creek. These airports are for smaller crafts and you should contact the airport operators before travel.

By Water

Door County is a boating and sailing paradise, with more than 300 miles of shoreline with numerous bays, coves and cliffs. Many of the marinas in Door County have transient boat slips suited for multi-day visitors. Contact the local marina for reservations and the amenities offered.

The Lake Michigan Car Ferry links Ludington, Michigan with Manitowoc, Wisconsin, turning a 450-mile drive into a four-hour cruise on the S.S. Badger across the open waters of Lake Michigan. From Manitowoc, there is an additional one hour and fifteen minute drive to get to Sturgeon Bay. The car ferry sails seven days a week from mid-May to mid-October and reservations are recommended.
