Strong start to summer in Southern Door

Claudia Grosbeier from CJ’s Bar and Grill in Idlewild has been slinging a lot of burgers for people coming through the area in the opening weeks of the tourist season. Specific numbers will not be released by the Door County Tourism Zone for a few more weeks, but Grosbeier says their bottom line has been on par with what they did last year despite the rainy and cool weather possibly keeping some tourists away until later in the season. Grosbeier credits cottage owners coming up to get ready for the season and visitors to local attractions like the Sherwood Point Lighthouse and Potawatomi State Park with some of the early season success.

CJ’s Bar and Grill has also been doing its part to grab more people from outside of the area to Idlewild, including this weekend’s bike show and next month’s Fourth of July parade.
