New Year’s Day is a time of celebration and fresh beginnings. And what better way to do that than spend New Year’s with new friends (and your old favourites) here at our inn? The Chanticleer Guest House has been decorated for the season, and we’ve got both spacious and cozy rooms available – perfect for a party or a more intimate gathering.
However, the stroke of midnight doesn’t have to mean the end of your fun. Several events are happening this coming New Year’s in Door County. Nearby in the town of Egg Harbor, there’s the annual New Year’s parade, which happens rain or shine – a perfect way to enjoy the sights and sounds of our part of Wisconsin, with live music, food vendors, and ice sculptures.
If you’re feeling brave, you can also head down to Lakeside Park to take part in a Polar Bear Swim in Lake Michigan – though you might want to pack some blankets and a thermos of hot tea or coffee to help warm you up after your dip in the lake!
Of course, there are many things to do in Door County at this time of year, New Year’s Day or no. In particular, you can take advantage of the hiking trails close to our inn, or take part in many other winter activities, like sleigh rides, skiing, and snowshoeing.
The winter snow is always a beautiful sight to behold – what better way to take it in than spending time outside, enjoying nature and healthy activity? We feel that Door County has a rare type of beauty, and love more than anything to show it to others. In particular, it always seems fitting to have visitors with us during New Year’s, so that they can experience the beauty we see every day for the first time.
We wish you and your family a holiday season filled with hope and love – and a Happy New Year!
