The revamped website went live Wednesday.

The website was gifted to Kewaunee County by Kewaunee County Economic Development Corp. (KCEDC) in September. County officials kept the already established brand and original URL, but the site underwent a total redesign.

The website, which was unveiled this week at the 2017 Wisconsin Governor’s Conference on Tourism in Milwaukee by the designer, DMI Studios, invites visitors to Explore, Stay, Dine and Shop Kewaunee County. It also showcases the latest local Events and highlights latest tourism-related News happening in Kewaunee County.

“The goal of is to be a one-stop shop for visitors, whether you’re coming from out-of-town and searching for something unique to do in Kewaunee County or if you’re simply looking to be a tourist in your hometown,” said Jennifer Schneider, Kewaunee County tourism coordinator/public information officer. “When people travel, they are on their smart phones and tablets and we needed a website like this one to help get Kewaunee County on the map.”

The website is also designed to easily adjust to fit different-sized screens. And, behind the scenes Kewaunee County will be able to keep close tabs on the amount of site traffic.

“We’re able to track the number of users, page views, the average amount of time that someone is on the website and more,” said Ross Loining, Kewaunee County IT Director.

The new website is just the beginning of tourism-related improvements for Kewaunee County, Schneider said. The look of the site is designed to resemble the new “Welcome to Kewaunee County” signs scheduled to go up in spring on state highways 29, 54 and 42.
