Tourism spending up in every Wisconsin county

MADISON - Every county in Wisconsin saw an increase in tourism spending in 2014, making last year the first time in four years that every county took in more than the year before.

Wisconsin's Department of Tourism reports travelers contributed $18.5 billion to Wisconsin's economy last year, a 5.5 percent increase from the year before.

The department says improvements in the overall economy and lower gas prices accounted for much of the jump.
