Kewaunee County experienced an increase of $200,000 in visitor spending in 2016. In a report by the Wisconsin Department of Tourism, tourism spending in Kewaunee County rose to $17.6 million last year. Tourism Coordinator and Public Information Officer Jennifer Schneider says Kewaunee County has just scratched the surface in attracting tourists to the area.
Schnieder says Kewaunee County is in the process of installing new “Welcome to Kewaunee County” signs on the entrances of the three major state highways and recently relaunched a new tourism website. You can find a link to that website with this story online.
