MADISON, Wis.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Wisconsin’s 16 million acres of forests will soon transform from bright green to vibrant seasonal hues, and travelers can use the Travel Wisconsin Fall Color Report to find the best fall color and plan their getaway. With more than 25,000 views so far, the award-winning report has seen a steady increase in website traffic since July, nearly two months earlier than last year’s Fall Color Report. The report, which officially launched today on TravelWisconsin.com, offers an interactive map with links to nearby events, lodging and dining; local travel tips, such as scenic drives and seasonal activities; and the ability to share, tag and rate photos.
FALL COLOR REPORT FACTS
Fall foliage fans interested in tracking the state’s changing color can access the report from their mobile device to make travel decisions on the go, or text “WI Fall” to 468311 to receive alerts. Visitors can also sign up to have the Fall Color Report emailed to them every Thursday in time to make weekend plans. More than 100 fall color reporters throughout the state provide updates for all 72 counties, making the Travel Wisconsin Fall Color Report the most timely and comprehensive report available. It is updated "virtually live," meaning reporters from chambers of commerce, visitor bureaus, tourism organizations, and state parks and forests can update their area’s status as conditions change. At a minimum, fall color watchers update once a week.
To assist the media who report the state’s evolving fall colors in newscasts, weather programs, weekend features or travel sections, the Fall Color Report can be viewed three ways:
- Embed a dynamic and customizable version of the Fall Conditions Report to your website. Once embedded, the report will show a live feed in real time. This simple embed code allows the option to highlight a specific area or the whole report.
- Subscribe online here to receive the report via email every Thursday.
- Check the report independently at TravelWisconsin.com/Fall-Color-Report at any time.
