Where Have All the Colors Gone?

Well, folks, winter is upon us (or it feels like it is). The ground is covered with snow and all of the beautiful colors of fall are nowhere to be seen. All I can say is that this year, I am truly excited for the snow. It is pretty and it’s getting me excited for Christmas! I’ve been having dreams of skiing and playing in the snow. I hope to make it up to Door County this winter to try out the cross country skiing, though I tend to be more of a downhill skier. I’m ready for a new adventure though. Happy holidays, everyone. And embrace the snow!

Where Have All the Colors Gone?

Wilson’s Restaurant and Ice Cream Parlor

Time travel. Wouldn’t it be cool? I would love to travel back into the different decades and see just what the world was like at those specific points in time. With Wilson’s Restaurant and Ice Cream Parlor, customers are able to travel back in time just for a moment.

Wilson’s reminds me of a diner, complete with a juke box, old Coca Cola artifacts, and good old-fashioned diner food. Whether you are craving a big, juicy burger or a banana split, Wilson’s diner food promises to satisfy all taste buds. Wilson’s has a wide variety of recognizable meals like burgers, fries, chicken tenders, chili dogs, and nachos, so you will never guess at what you are ordering. As for ice cream, there really is not a better place in Door County for ice cream.  The restaurant contains a wall of flavors to choose from, my favorite being strawberry cheesecake, as well as many specialty creations. Of course there are shakes,malts, sundaes, and many ice cream dishes with delicious cherries.

Honestly, though, my absolute favorite thing about Wilson’s is the Coke. Being someone who appreciates a delicious Coke to get the day started, it is very difficult to find a place to simply purchase a Coke to go (besides my favorite Egg Harbor BP gas station). Most restaurants are sit-down; you could never find a Coke for the road. But with Wilson’s, it was possible to walk up, order a coke, and be on my way, making it easily one of my favorite restaurants in Door County. Oh the little things in life.

Wilson’s is located on Highway 42 in Ephraim, directly across from the bay so you can enjoy your ice cream right by the water.



Door County Traveling

Today I head out for an exciting adventure in Door County, Wisconsin! After being away for a month, I cannot wait to return. Though it will not be the busy, tourist location that it was in summer, the trip should still be filled with many exciting places and memories. Plus, I really enjoy the non-tourism seasons of Door County. With abundant nature and picturesque scenery, Door County is truly a peaceful escape from the stresses of college and life. When I return, I hope to have taken many pictures and have experienced many new locations to share with everyone. 

Have a wonderful weekend everyone, and stay tuned for more photographs and Door County info!
