What better place to spend the Easter holiday than in Egg Harbor, Wisconsin? Eggs and Easter - What could be better?
No one is quite sure how Egg Harbor got it's name but there is a legend that Elvis prefers. The story goes like this; From an article in the Door County Advocate of April 26, 1862. The story indicates that three or four Mackinac boats left Green Bay to deliver furs to the trading post on Mackinac Island. The boats stopped at the yet unnamed harbor to rest for the night. While rowing ashore there was a race to see who would reach the shore first. Food from the mess baskets was thrown at the leading boat and food quickly returned. First, hard tack was the missile of choice, but soon eggs flew through the air. When the boats reached the shore, the battle continued until the eggs were gone. Everyone enjoyed the fun and the story of the battle which was often repeated by the voyagers. The harbor was then identified as Egg Harbor. See more HERE.
The most photogenic billboard in a very photogenic place is for the Shipwrecked Restaurant & Microbrewery that is neatly painted on an old, abandoned silo.
