Visitor Spending Up Again in Door County

Apparently visitors still find Door County quite attractive, judging from the money they spent here in 2017. Jon Jarosh, Director of Communications and PR for the Door County Visitor Bureau, says figures released by the Wisconsin Department of Tourism Friday indicate that the numbers were up significantly last year…

Jarosh says the most recent numbers are a reflection of the steady increase seen locally for nearly a decade…

In Door County, the $358.7 million direct visitor spending supported 3,225 jobs and $78.5 five million in labor income.
