This is another great day in our lovely county. This week is National Travel and Tourism Week, May 7-14, 2023, so come by the visitors’ center for some games and giveaways. Also, please keep checking our website for some fun activities for prizes.
So, what is Tourism?
Tourism is travel for pleasure or business and the commercial activity of providing and supporting such journey. As with any business, tourism can positively and negatively impact the destinations’ environment, culture, economy, and society. We aim to minimize the negative and strengthen the positive effects, such as creating jobs, generating income, and promoting cultural exchange. Tourism requires sustainable management that balances visitors’ and local citizens’ needs and interests. So, please travel through our backroads and main roads, visit our shops, stay at our local lodging entities spread throughout our county, embrace our beauty, and welcome our guests. Remember, tell them: come and get lost and find yourself here!
Let’s talk again next week!
