The Door County Visitor Bureau has released what is the first sign of a strong 2016 for tourism in the area. Through the county’s 0.5 percent sales tax, collections were up around 7 percent from 2015 totals. Jon Jarosh from the Door County Visitor Bureau says while they cannot get specific sales figures, it reflects very well on the numbers of people that visited the region in 2016 and the money that was spent.
Jarosh says specific economic impact numbers from tourism will be released in May.
