      Businesses seeing strong summer tourism despite cooler temperatures

      Campers entering the Frankenmuth Jellystone Park to vacation over Labor Day weekend.

      Despite a cooler summer in Michigan this year, many businesses say they are still on track for a great season.

      Labor Day Weekend is considered to be the end of the summer travel season and many are forecasting strong sales.

      The Frankenmuth Jellystone Park expects a more than 95 percent occupancy over the holiday.

      "The majority of our guests are from Michigan. We have seen a big increase this last year in Ohio?|and Ontario also," said Cindy Keinath, one of the owners of the campground.

      Some campers say, because of the cooler summer weather, they are actually spending more time outdoors.

      Downtown businesses like the Harvest Coffee House are also noticing the traffic. As far as summer tourism goes, the manager says Labor Day is the busiest time of the summer.

      Even with rain expected over the weekend, businesses are still very optimistic about sales.
