The Sturgeon Bay Visitors Center is ready to proclaim the summer of 2019 a success. It only officially ended on Labor Day so no hard numbers are available yet, or expected for some time, but anecdotally things were busy. Carly Sarkis was hired in the spring as the new Marketing and Events Coordinator. Sarkis is originally from Sturgeon Bay but lived elsewhere for six years. She has spent the last three months amazed at how Door County has become a summer fixture for people across the Midwest.
To beat 2018, Door County tourism would need to top $366.6 million dollars. Tourism supports over 3,000 jobs in the county.
