New numbers from the Wisconsin Department of Tourism show that Douglas County experienced an impressive boost in tourism during the summer of 2013.

The numbers, released last week as a state-wide demographic, show that Douglas County saw more growth in visitor spending than any other county throughout Wisconsin. Visitor spending  grew more than 10% in the county for 2013.

The industry’s impact on the state overall also increased last year. A study conducted by Tourism Economics shows the impact of tourism on the state’s economy was $17.5 billion in 2013, up 4% from the previous year.

Douglas Co. is touted as a strong resort community, thriving in both summer and winter months.
