Happy National Tourism Week! Yes, our industry is so critical to the US economy we have a week dedicated to recognize the $2 trillion in visitor spending, 14.6 million jobs created from travel and the $129 billion in federal, local and state taxes paid by visitors. We are fortunate to live and work in a community that values tourism and understands that "it does not just happen." As you've heard me mention before, this is a group effort and we appreciate all of you for what you do to make the Total Visitor Experience a great one here in our region. Thank you for making visitors feel welcome!
