Strong tourism numbers of Door County shared earlier this month by the Wisconsin Department of Tourism and an optimistic forecast for this year means locals can expect a big influx of visitors this coming Memorial Day weekend. State Tourism Secretary Stephanie Klett says residents of Door County should appreciate the unique beauty of the area.
Door County experienced a $15 million increase in tourism spending last year which reflected a four percent bump from 2015. Visitor spending has grown $90 million over the eight consecutive years of increased tourism spending in Door County.
