If you are arriving by car, it’s always good to know how our roads are laid out.  Hwy 42 runs along the west side of the county on the bay side of Green Bay.  Hwy 57 runs along Lake Michigan on the east side of Door County.  Hwy 42 and Hwy 57 meet in Sister Bay to the north.  In Sister Bay, Hwy 57 ends but Hwy 42 continues north to Northport.  It takes almost 75 minutes to drive from the county line in southern Door to the end of Hwy. 42 at Northport.  At Northport, you can take the ferry to Washington Island that takes about 30 minutes.  To get to Rock Island from Washington Island it takes another 25 minutes.  The Washington Island Ferry offers daily year-round service.  Ferry’s can transport cars, motorcycles, snowmobiles, kayaks, four wheelers, bicycles and freight.
