Algoma Celebrates Hospitality Industry During National Travel and Tourism Week
At a time when we should be welcoming visitors from all over the world to our tiny slice of heaven along the shores of Lake Michigan, instead we are asking people to stay away for just a little while longer.
May 3-9, 2020, is National Travel and Tourism Week so the Algoma Area Chamber is joining communities all over the country by going purple in honor of our hospitality industry that has been hit particularly hard this year due to the pandemic.
The color purple was selected to represent hospitality as not only a symbol of luxury but also as a blend of red and blue which represent confidence (red) and comfort (blue).
Visit Kewaunee County reported the spending statistics released by the Wisconsin Department of Tourism on May 4, 2020. According to the release, direct visitor spending in Kewaunee County rose to $24.5 million in 2019, which is up from $23.5 million in 2018, a 4.23% increase.
While we stay Safer at Home for now, feel free to book your rooms and reserve your camping spots for a future trip. What do you look forward to doing the next time you visit Friendly Algoma?
