Door County respite trip

My daughter and I are travelling to Door County for a long weekend in July. We will be staying in Fish Creek, and I definitely want to see the fields of lavender on Washington Island. I am interested in places/shops/activities to nourish my soul, and replenish my energy. Any specific items you would recommend?

The Ridges Sanctuary is a good place to consider. It's a nature area but also feels more than that, very calm and lovely. There are some beautiful art galleries and views of sunsets that will help too. Just sit and watch the lake or bay from some more secluded spots. Newport State Park is less visited than others. Cave Point is striking, but you'll find more crowds there. Go to the tip of the Door and look out at at Washington Island. Or visit some used book stores, lots of places to go and things to do.

I enjoyed Whitefish Dunes State Park. I thought it was less crowded than some of the other state parks up there. I'd also recommend walking around The Clearing Folk School grounds. I found that place to be very peaceful and serene. http://theclearing.org/current/index.shtml
