Over $100 million in 2014!

Sales Sign Up.jpgThe “tourist season” is only a month away, and we all already know the tremendous economic boost this brings to our community. But there are some new hard facts that continue to back that up.  

The Wyoming Office of Tourism just released its latest annual study, conducted by Dean Runyan Associates, on the economic impact of travel in the state and in each county.   

According to the study: 

In calendar year 2014, the Direct Travel Spending in Sheridan County was $103.3 million! That’s up from $98.5 million in 2013 … and way up from $63.2 million in 2000.

The largest component of that spending was on Food Service ($25.1 million), followed by Accommodations ($19.2 million), Retail Sales ($17.2 million), Local Transportation/Gas ($17.0 million), and Arts/Entertainment/Recreation ($14.7 million). These are attention-getting figures!       

Here’s the full report if you’d like to see more – more breakdowns, more types of data, more historical comparisons, more counties. The Sheridan County data is on page 44. (We’re sure you’ll be hearing more from Sheridan Travel & Tourism on this too.)
