Lodging takes on different feel

Many travelers coming to Door County are not doing a whole lot when they come to town, and it is not just because of the change in seasons. Data from AirBnb shows that while bookings to international or faraway locations took a nosedive at the onset of the pandemic, travelers from 50 miles away or fewer have stayed consistent at around three to four million since October 2019. Sturgeon Bay business owner Wendy Carter says her AirBnb rentals over the winter months this year are up over 2019 as she has been consistently booked. She just has not seen as many people exploring the area as much.

Carter is interested to see if that trend continues through the winter. She adds that even though other businesses like her restaurants have been quiet, she is confident that everyone will be able to pull through together.
