The Crawford County Tourism Council, a standing committee of Community Development Alternatives, Inc, represents the collaboration of several communities with the goal of promoting Crawford County as a tourism destination.  Beginning in 2003, the Council has successfully promoted the county through the print advertising, website development, and event creation.  CDA secured JEM (Joint Effort Marketing) from the Wisconsin Department of Tourism to advertise the Driftless Area Art Festival and the Kickapoo Brave Ride, along with other companion events across the County.   

The Council is currently collaborating with the Vernon County Tourism Council and the Kickapoo Valley Association to promote the entire area through a new association called “Driftless Wisconsin.” Through its new website and brochure, Driftless Wisconsin brings a new awareness to potential visitors as they consider all that the area has to offer in their vacation planning.  

With the help of participating communities, dedicated volunteers, and both private and public grants, the Crawford County Tourism Council has been able to market Crawford County in ways previously not possible.  The Council and its tourism partners have helped smaller communities realize the importance of tourism as a critical component of economic development.  In working collaboratively with organizations, communities and adjacent counties, CDA looks forward to helping make tourism an economic force in the area.
