With the fall colors peaking a little later than normal this year, you still have time to see the bright reds, oranges, and yellow leaves turning in the Door Peninsula. According to Travel Wisconsin, as of Tuesday, Door County is at 50 percent color with the peak projected for next week sometime. Kewaunee County shows trees to be at 80 percent of fall color. Jon Jarosh from Destination Door County says he believes the later leaf-peeping this year will lead to stronger tourism for late October and even early November.
Jarosh says leaf-peeping adds to the tourism activity in Door County. He notes that all indications are showing a huge overall tourism season this year. There is an added benefit with visitors traveling to Door County to relax and get rejuvenated by viewing while photographing the fall foliage as leaves change color in autumn.
