Door County. Good times.

Social Circle: Best place for a Wisconsin weekend getaway?

The "Social Circle" is a group effort between readers, social networkers and the editors. Every Monday, we ask a question via Facebook and Twitter and then post the responses from our Facebook "likers" and Twitter followers in this column. Well-known Milwaukee movers and shakers will contribute, too.

This week, polled the Social Circle for its favorite Wisconsin vacation spots. A lot of shout outs for Door County and other lush "Up North" places. And one vote for the Sybaris.
