Sturgeon Bay Overview

Sturgeon Bay is the county seat of Door County, Wisconsin, United States. The population was 9,437 at the 2000 census. It is located at the natural end of Sturgeon Bay, although a canal was built across the remainder of the Door Peninsula.

Because of this city's proximity between Green Bay and Lake Michigan, this location was frequented by many Native American tribes throughout it's history.

Sturgeon Bay is the largest city in Door County, which is the peninsula of Wisconsin, and serves as the economic and governmental center of the region.

Considered to be the tip of the Midwest's Cape Cod, this city is reminiscent of the 1950's when boutique mom-and-pop shops dotted the downtown offering unique goods and services. Also hosted here are many quaint bed and breakfast establishments that cater to the heavily touristed population during the summer and fall seasons.
