Increased tourism in Door County is more than just dollars and cents for the area. Along with 4.5 percent climb in tourism dollars spent and a 4.35 percent rise in overall economic impact, the industry also supported a total of 3,178 jobs in Door County, an increase of just over 2 percent. That accounts for $75.1 million that was generated as a result of tourism spending. Jon Jarosh from Door County Visitor Bureau says many of these jobs come from small businesses.
The Door County Visitor Bureau is celebrating National Travel and Tourism Week by releasing its Power of Tourism report to all county residents and honoring Faye Blank as its Certified Tourism Ambassador (CTA) of the year.
