Cold, rainy weather doesn't stop tourists from enjoying vacationSubmitted: 07/26/2013

RHINELANDER - The forecast may seem like fall but that's not stopping tourists from enjoying the summer activities in the Northwoods.

Holiday Acres Resort owner Kim Zambon believes the weather doesn't stop tourists from doing what they want to do.

Holiday Acres Resort owner Kim Zambon says, "They come up here to spend time with their families and it's a time when you have no other distractions. You just enjoy your family."

Zambon says the resort rarely gets a cancellation due to weather in the summer.

Tourists stay busy at the resort and at local museums and storms.

"If it's not raining, it's a warm week, there's mosquito problems that we don't really like. We use a lot of Off! so that's kind of a negative, too, if you want to think cold or rain is negative," says Holiday Acres Resort Guest Tom Harwood.

Zambon agrees.

He urges tourism-based businesses to stay positive despite the weather.

"See everything that comes along as an opportunity. Sometimes it's not what you might plan for. Sometimes it throws you a curve. But, hey, we're all pretty lucky to be here, and it's a great place to live and a great place to visit," says Zambon.
