Heart of the North Tourism Group

The ‘Heart of the North’ Tourism Group wishes to thank our state representatives for taking the time to meet with us.  We are always appreciative of sharing the excitement that a trip to Northwest Wisconsin can provide for literally anyone, no matter what one is looking for in a vacation getaway!   Lakes, woods, trails, outdoor recreation, tranquility, along with our small-town hospitality and array of creative businesses, are among the reasons that so many visitors include us in their vacation plans each year.  This tourism, in turn, is vital to the success of our local economies. 

We’d also like to thank our Wisconsin Department of Tourism for their wonderful partnership and efforts in helping to promote our ‘Heart of the North’ counties of Barron, Rusk, Sawyer and Washburn here in Northwest Wisconsin.  In addition to Secretary Sayers and the talented staff in the Madison office, we greatly value the work of Jeff Anderson, as Jeff is the Tourism Development Specialist covering our beautiful area.  We look forward to a meaningful and memorable discussion regarding the vitally important role that tourism will continue to play in our future!
