With the last of the huge festival weekends of the fall completed in Door County last week, the 2017 tourism season looks for a strong finish in the next few months. Wisconsin’s State Tourism Secretary Stephanie Klett says Door County ranks in the top ten for tourism dollars spent year after year.
Klett says there is evidence that the 2017 tourism numbers have been strong to date and were buoyed by one of the best 4th of July weekends ever. Wisconsin’s tourism reached $20 billion in 2016 which was up $700 million from 2015.
