It's hard to admit but summer is almost over and autumn is right around the corner.
In fact, the Wisconsin Department of Tourism is already updating their fall color report for the season. If you plan your trips just right, the fall season can last a long time in our state.
"We consider fall to be September through November. And it is our second-strongest travel month for the state's economy, driving nearly $3 billion to the state's economy now it has grown well over 110% in the last decade."
Tourism Secretary Kelli Trumble says this time of year the Department sees a lot of people traveling without the kids, enjoying the many food festivals and fall foliage throughout the state.
You can check their website, TravelWisconsin.com, to see what's out there for you. "…what sounds good today? Apples, cranberries, pumpkins? Where do I want to be in Wisconsin?"
The fall season in Wisconsin is the second-biggest travel season, accounting for over 3-billion tourism dollars last year. Summer generates most of our state's 13-billion tourism dollars. Trumble says the Badger State is a great destination for fall colors, festivals and relaxing getaways. Find the best fall colors in the state at TravelWisconsin.com .
