- The beautiful scenery, resorts, and other attractions draw many tourists to the Northwoods.
Local businesses want to keep it that way.
While the summer season wrapped up a month ago, some businesses are already thinking about next summer.
Vilas County Tourism and Publicity and the Lac du Flambeau Chamber of Commerce will host a Fall Accommodation Tour and Workshop in Lac Du Flambeau on October 14th. It gives business owners the opportunity to see what other businesses offer.
"We're coming down off of a busy season and all of our accommodation owners and business owners are trying to get ideas for, 'Okay, what can we do better for next year? For next summer? How can we make things better and how can we make our business grow?' So right now is the perfect time for those people to start brainstorming," said Manitowish Waters Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Sarah Pischer.
Organizers see some businesses form new relationships. One way is to promote each other by offering a package deal.
People on the tour will also hear from a DNR fisheries biologist about Vilas County fishing.
"We have visitors coming by the thousands for the fishing programs and for the fishing that we have in these lakes. So for all business owners and all residents to know exactly what we have going on in our fisheries, it's quite important," Pischer added.
The event is open to all businesses. The cost is $20 and lunch is included.
If you'd like to participate in the tour and workshop, call your local chamber of commerce or Vilas County Tourism and Publicity at (715) 479-3649.
You must register by October 7th.
