December's numbers aren't in, but through 11 months it's looking like the 2012 Door County tourism season will top 2011.
Members of the Door County Tourism Zone Commission got a look at the latest numbers Thursday.
One piece of positive news according to Commission Chair Josh Van Lieshout was an increase in average daily room rates.
Van Lieshout says year-to-date revenues through November 2012 are 6.1% higher than 2011.
Another figure VanLieshout shared is $61 million. That's the total value of lodging in Door County, a 6.1% increase over the year before.
"Certainly this shows the value of the room tax effort as well as the value of our partnership with the Door County Visitor Bureau," says Van Lieshout.
The Tourism Zone Commission collects room tax from 19 different municipalities in Door County. The tax is split into 70% and 30% shares, with the 30% share distributed to the municipalities and the 70% share spent on marketing Door County as a tourism destination.
