Leaves are still a few weeks away from their expected shades of red, orange, and yellow for the fall, but the preparation for a busy couple weeks in Door County starts now. Fall trails only summer when it comes to economic activity for the area according to Jon Jarosh from the Door County Visitor Bureau. During September, October, and November last year, the county collected over $1.3 million in room taxes, one of many fall tourism indicators for the area. Jarosh says Door County’s geography gives the leaf peepers extra opportunities to check out the colors.
Jarosh added festivals and family activities like apple picking give visitors extra things to do even if the fall colors have not hit their peak. You can find a fall color report online with this story.
