Majority Of Visitor Spending Is Not Spent On Lodging

Fond du Lac Area Convention and Visitors Bureau President Craig Molitor says it is fortunate that the County has seen the biggest increase percentage wise in visitor spending over the last two years in the state. He says people have the idea that most of that spending is going towards lodging at area hotels and motels, but that is far from the case. He says 75 percent of visitor spending is spent outside of a hotel. He says it is spent on things like restaurants, gas stations, shops, theaters, art galleries, and other venues are all busy if we can have a vibrant tourism sector.
