Fish Creek is adjacent to Peninsula State Park, and its main entrance is in the village next to Juile’s Park Cafe. The park has a cream city brick lighthouse built in 1866. Eagle Bluff Lighthouse is fully restored, furnished with fine antiques, as it looked in the 19th Century, and is open daily for tours in the summer months. Door County also holds the title of the “county with more lighthouses than any other in the country”.
Fish Creek has always attracted artists and craftspeople, and has a fairly large art community; many studios sell their art work and are open to the public. Fish Creek is also home to the Peninsula School of the Arts, founded by Madeline Tourtelot in 1965. Classes in most of the arts are available in the summer months. Not far from the Art School is the Door County Auditorium; it hosts performing artists from all over the country and has had many big names perform there. It is also attached to the local school so the students may take advantage of the stage for their own productions.
