With the busy tourism season of festivals and events wrapping up last month, State Tourism Secretary Stephanie Klett reflects on what makes Kewaunee County a prime destination for visitors every year. She shares her thoughts on what makes the area one of the state’s “hidden gems”.
Klett mentions the “haunted” Karsten Hotel in Kewaunee as another memorable place to visit in Kewaunee County. Kewaunee County experienced an increase of $200,000 in visitor spending last year to $17.6 million, according to a report by the Wisconsin Department of Tourism. The report for 2017 tourism numbers will be released sometime next May by the state.
