There’s plenty of fun coming up this Labor Day weekend in Wisconsin, and despite recent flood damage, tourism is open for business. Clean up and repairs are ongoing, and the Department of Tourism and local tourism businesses encourage visitors not to cancel their Labor Day vacation plans.

Travelers should be prepared for detours and are encouraged to call ahead to individual tourism businesses or visitor centers for further information about local conditions. Road closures and detours are available at www.511wi.gov, and updated state park and trail conditions can be found on the Department of Natural Resources website. Local tourism organizations and chambers can provide additional information, and further details may be available on each destination’s website and social channels.

Safe travels!
