Summer Reading Book Review - Wisconsin's Door County

Book Title: Wisconsin's Door County

Author: Thomas Huhti

Reviewed By: Lynn R.

Wisconsin's Door County by Thomas Huhti is an excellent travel guide. It begins with information on planning a trip to Door County. The author describes sights to see (including the best place for sunrises and sunsets). There is background information about the landscape, the people, and the history. Fun fact: Door County is the 4th largest cherry producing region in the nation. There is also information about nearby areas such as Milwaukee which is on the drive to Door County.

Why you picked it up: A friend offered a quick trip to her cottage in Door County. I wanted to read about it beforehand to familiarize myself with the area.

Why you finished it: I finished this book because the last two sections were 'Essentials' and 'Resources'. Now who wouldn't read that? They even tell you how to get a free road map. The resource section includes additional reading plus a variety of Wisconsin related websites. They also mention the speed traps as well as the lower prices (everywhere except Door County) and lower tax rate.

Who you would recommend it to: I would recommend this book to anyone thinking about a mini trip to Door County. It is a little over a 4 hour drive (from the Roselle library) and a lovely place to visit.
