My question is this: When did Wisconsin get a $13 billion tourism industry?
Does seeing Frank Lloyd Wright’s house and a state full of flat land and trees hold that much interest?
Is it the casino gaming? (That dog track has been losing money since the day it was founded.)
Is it the dairy & grain products?
I know Summerfest is big, but Jesus Wept, it’s not that big.
I could understand it–somewhat–if they were concerned about the fall and winter travel seasons, but they shouldn’t be worried a whit about summer. The Chicagoans & Twin Cities residents will still come, and I reckon most of the Wisconsinites will stay.
Because it’s too expensive to go anywhere else.
