Tourism Works For America

Recently United Nation’s tourism officials announced that international tourist arrivals grew by close to 5 percent during the first months of 2011, consolidating the 7 percent rebound registered in 2010.

The great news is that the USA still holds the #1 slot.

Inbound tourism either from foreign or domestic visitors’ means that they are here spending dollars here in the USA.

Become a tourism ambassador and suggest that people come and spend money in our (your) part of Ohio, Kentucky and West Virginia!

Be kind to your travel agent and get out of town!

Be kind to your local visitors and convention bureau and suggest that your friends, relatives, business associates, whomever visit your town and spend time and their MONEY!
