The Power of Tourism in Door County
Destination Door County most recently celebrated National Travel and Tourism Week from May 1-7, 2022! Tourism continues to play a critical role in financially supporting our residents and is the reason so many unique experiences, attractions and things like restaurants, parks and entertainment venues are available in Door County for all to enjoy. Tax dollars generated from visitors also financially support municipal governments throughout the county and have helped pay for many park upgrades and public green space expansions. Join Destination Door County in recognizing the importance of travel in our community during national travel and tourism week this year, and every year.
