New tourism numbers are out for Wisconsin; and for the first time in recorded history, the numbers were up in all 72 counties across the state in 2014.

A total of $11.4 billion in visitor spending was recorded across the state, and tourism was responsible for generating 1.4 billion in state and local taxes.

Wisconsin Rocks!

In case you hadn’t noticed it for the past few months, there are things like grass and pavement under what until recently were persistent piles of Wisconsin snow.

The rocks that can be found even further underneath all of it formed over hundreds of millions of years.  All of these rocks of many different kinds can be more interesting than you might have thought.

Rob Graziano, instructor and an instructional lab manager in the Department of Geosciences at UW-Milwaukee, already knows they're interesting.

Have you planned your summer vacation yet?  It might surprise you to learn that there are people overseas who are already plotting their vacations for next year.

Wisconsin expects its heaviest traffic today, tomorrow, Wednesday and the Sunday after Thanksgiving, because of the holiday and the deer hunt.
