Oneida & Vilas County see more visitor spending in 2014

EAGLE RIVER - Oneida County and Vilas County tourism workers might hope for another year as good as 2014. Visitors spent $207.5 million, $415 million combined, in each county last year.

For Vilas County, it's an increase of nearly 2.3 percent compared to 2013. For Oneida County, it's a 5.4 percent increase compared to 2013. Tourism experts like Cindy Burzinski, director of Vilas County Tourism & Publicity, didn't know exactly what to expect from the 2013-14 winter. That's because much of Wisconsin had snow.

"So it's not like the northern half just had snow alone," Burzinski said. "And so, that always makes a big difference for the simple reason, we don't know if people are traveling north."
