WISCONSIN DEPARTMENT OF TOURISM MADISON - There’s no place like Wisconsin, especially in the fall when the state’s 16 million acres of forests turn into a spectacular canvas of fall color. The best way for travelers and residents alike to pinpoint peak fall foliage and plan a getaway is with the Wisconsin Department of Tourism’s Fall Color Report, which launched on TravelWisconsin.com. The report is the website’s most viewed page during the fall season.
Fall foliage fans interested in tracking the state’s fall color as it evolves over the next several weeks can access the report on desktops, as well as smartphones and tablets to make travel decisions on the go. Visitors can also sign up to have the Fall Color Report emailed to them every Thursday in time to make weekend plans.
More than 100 fall color reporters throughout the state provide updates for all 72 counties, making the Travel Wisconsin Fall Color Report the most timely and comprehensive report available. It is updated "virtually live," meaning reporters from chambers of commerce, visitor bureaus, tourism organizations and state parks and forests can update their area’s status as conditions change. At a minimum, fall color watchers update once a week.
The report also offers an interactive map; tabs for nearby events, activities, lodging and dining; travel tips from the local area such as scenic drives, upcoming events and other interests; links for local travel information; and the ability to share, tag and rate photos
