Washington Island

Welcome to Washington Island!
Information about Island attractions & Life on Washington Island.

Washington Island, WI, located six miles off the tip of the Door County Peninsula, is a favorite Midwest destination for tourists year-round. People come to Washington Island to get away from the tension of urban life, to travel “North of the Tension Line” and enjoy a slower, relaxing pace of life!
