More people traveling around Door County could bring more problems for you if you are not careful. Memorial Day marks the unofficial start of summer across the country and the beginning of tourism season for locales like Door County. With that comes more people traveling on area roadways and opening up their second homes for the summer. Ephraim and Egg Harbor Fire Chief Justin MacDonald say there are things you should keep in mind to help keep safe not just this weekend, but all summer long.
Tourism officials expect this summer to be similar to last year when a record $11.1 million in room taxes were collected. Room tax revenues are one of the tourism indicators Destination Door County uses along with other data that will be made available by the state next month.
