2005 Wisconsin Tourism Income Highest Yet

More tourism dollars flowed into Wisconsin last year, even though gas prices were higher and the winter was milder.

Total spending at hotels, restaurants and other state attractions was nearly 12 billion dollars in 2005. That's up two-tenths of a percent from the year previous.

A state tourism study shows spending was up in the summer and fall, traditionally the year's stronger seasons for tourism. Spending dropped in winter and spring, perhaps because of the minimal snow and the cool, wet spring.

Tourism is the state's third largest industry.
