Tourists resilient through road construction

Even with road construction strangling traffic in and heading towards Door County from southern Wisconsin and Illinois, tourists still found a way. According to the Door County Tourism Zone’s latest report, room tax returns are up four percent over last year through August while sales tax numbers appear to be on pace to be the best ever. Those are two major indicators used to determine how successful the tourism economy has been so far this year according to Jon Jarosh from the Door County Visitor Bureau.

Jarosh says the late colors and the growing fall business are also helping shop, restaurant, and lodging owners justify staying open through the very end of October and into November.
