Oneida County Tourism Council invites tourism-related businesses to be listed on new website houses huge business database

The Oneida County Tourism Council (OCTC), a cooperative group of four county chambers, is inviting all county tourism-related businesses to be a part of its brand new website!

" launched in July and is already being well-received by interested travelers," according to an OCTC press release. "With relaxing colors and spirited accents, the mobile-first site was designed to be a hub for the county's businesses. Currently, the site houses all the tourism-related businesses who belong to a chamber of commerce within Oneida County. But OCTC officials want owners to know that non-chamber members are welcome to be a part of the site as well, provided they fall into the categories of lodging, shopping, dining, attractions or activities."

"We want this website to be the ultimate resource for travelers to Oneida County, but also for residents who might be looking for more information about a place to shop, or grab dinner," said Krystal Westfahl, president of the Oneida County Tourism Council (OCTC) and executive director of the Minocqua Area Chamber of Commerce. "The more businesses who take part, the more comprehensive our database is, the better we're serving people, and that's what we're here to do."

To get a business listed on, contact the chamber of commerce nearest to the business's location. Chamber membership is not required. Business owners will need to provide some basic contact information, a brief description, and a photo to generate the free listing. The info then becomes part of a large database that allows travelers to use a robust filter system to search by the type of business, amenities, location, and more.

For more information, contact a local chamber of commerce, or the Oneida County Tourism Council at, or via telephone at (800) 236-3006.
