Door County continues to see tourism spending grow locally. Visitor spending was up 2.26 percent in Door County in 2018, totaling $366.6 million. That is good for seventh overall in the state, behind much bigger counties like Milwaukee, Brown and Walworth. Jon Jarosh from the Door County Visitor Bureau says the impact can be felt much further than the walls of a hotel or boutique shop.
The state of Wisconsin reported Monday the overall impact of tourism reached $21.6 billion in 2018, with direct spending totaling $13.3 billion. The DCVB is kicking off National Travel and Tourism Week with its annual breakfast Tuesday at Stone Harbor Resort. You can listen to the full interview with Jon Jarosh online with this story.
