Resorts in lakes area doing well despite cool summer

The official end to summer is just a holiday weekend away and despite warnings of lackluster summer tourism season nationwide, people have still filled the cabins and hotels in the lakes area.

Despite a few rainy, cool days, many area resorts found that guests came from close to home. Rather than the long cross country summer vacations many economic-conscious families chose to spend dollars in towns they are familiar with.

Detroit Lakes tourism officials say fall colors are next on the list for attracting people to the area.
