Wisconsin Tourism Revenues Continue to Climb
Recently released figures from Wisconsin’s Department of Tourism indicate that tourism spending increased last year by 4.3% statewide to $17.5 billion.  This marks the fourth consecutive year of growth in Wisconsin’s essential tourism industry, which supported one in thirteen jobs throughout the state last year and generated $2.4 billion in local, state, and federal tax revenues combined.  St. Croix County experienced a particularly sharp 8.5% increase in tourism spending last year.  For more information on our state’s increasingly popular events, parks, and attractions, visit www.travelwisconsin.com.
