Plenty of people head to the Lake Michigan shore, and a smaller amount to Lake Superior, but that is absolutely dwarfed by the people heading to the tens of thousands of inland lakes dotted with cottages. Not even close. I would know.
that's just not true, as myself being a renowned expert on length of shorelines, besides Hawaii and Maui Counties as well as many Alaska Counties, Suffolk (Long Island) and Barnstable (Cape Cod) have way, WAY more shoreline than Door County.

Guys this is actually a really interesting discussion being had, but it's very off topic for the subject of the thread. If you'd like to continue it please do it in a thread relevant to it.

Weird, my whole life this statement was used on marketing materials, presentations and the like, and it's not true: The Politics of 298 Miles of Shoreline | Door County | Peninsula Pulse

Regardless, 300 miles of Lake Michigan shoreline is probably the most on the Great Lakes, so it's still germane to the point.
