What’s more relaxing than a movie in the comfort of your car? Originally owned by brothers Orville and Elton Voeks (they were also the first owners of the Lake Cinema indoor theatre in Baileys Harbor), the Skyway first opened its front gate on July 26th, 1950. Movies have lit up the screen every summer since then, making it the longest continuously running drive-in in Wisconsin. Once a common sight throughout the state, there are nine drive-ins still operating. Click here to show their upcoming showings!
Kurtz Corral began as a small pony ring in Egg Harbor in 1960. Lloyd Kurtz, grandfather of the current owner Jimmy Kurtz, had originally been a dairy farmer but enjoyed “horsetrading” as a hobby and after accumulating several ponies decided to offer a small riding ring for Door County tourists.
