As the summer tourism season heads into the later stages, State Tourism Secretary Stephanie Klett is well aware of the peninsula’s unique assets that attract thousands of visitors every weekend to the area. In an interview earlier this year with DoorCountyDailyNews.com, Klett shared what stands out for her when she visits Door County.
As far as Kewaunee County, Klett says the variety of experiences available is what intrigues her.
Visitor spending in Door County was up $15 million dollars last year according to a report from the Wisconsin Department of Tourism in May. Early indications are that this year’s tourism numbers are strong despite a wetter than normal spring and summer, according to Jon Jarosh of the Door County Visitors Bureau.
