"Gramping" becoming a trend in Door County

As more Baby Boomers become grandparents in Door County they are taking the opportunity to spoil their grandchildren by taking them on trips. “Gramping” is becoming the new trend where grandparents skip a generation and don’t take the parents along with them.  Sue Wehrli of Wehrli Travel in Sturgeon Bay says this is becoming much more popular. She has set up gramping trips to a Dude Ranch in Montana and to Costa Rica. Wehrli says it’s a good way for kids to gain new experiences without their parents.



Wehrli Travel is located on Glidden Drive in Sturgeon Bay.
