Door County is a county located in the U.S. state of Wisconsin. Its county seat is Sturgeon Bay. Door County is a popular vacation and tourist destination, especially for residents of south-eastern Wisconsin and northern Illinois.

Although Door County has a year round population of about 30,000, it experiences a tourist explosion each summer between Memorial Day and Labor Day, as the Lake Michigan cold gives way to a brief but comfortable summer. Outside the city of Sturgeon Bay (a more densely populated year-round community), many businesses are specifically targeted to the visitors, and close during the "off season" (roughly 8-9 months per year, although many tourists are opting to visit in the late spring and early fall, effectively extending the tourist season). Throughout the summer months, the population of Door County can reach levels as high as 250,000 residents, with tourists, and summer residents included, especially around and during the long weekends of Memorial Day, Independence Day (July 4), and Labor Day
