Sue Steele, a 23-year employee of the Wisconsin Tourism Center located in Hudson, assists St. Paul resident Connie Evans, who plans a bed-and-breakfast getaway to a different area in Wisconsin each year. Evans called the upcoming closing of the center "unbelievable."

The center orders over 700 different brochures for visitors to pick up, from the Jelly Belly Center in Pleasant Prairie to the Outagamie Museum and Houdini Historical Center in Appleton. Also available were commercial brochures and extensive guides on birding, golf, fishing and camping in Wisconsin.

According to center staff, a lot of people stop by on day trips to get ideas of what to do within a specific area.

The center will be open through Saturday, April 10, for people to get final information. After that, the Hudson Area Chamber of Commerce and Tourism Bureau will continue to offer information on sites in this region, along with official state publications.
