Join Visit Tri-Cities in sharing and celebrating the value of travel to quality of life for Americans during National Plan For Vacation Day, January 31, 2023!
This day highlights the importance of taking time off to travel. As stewards in the travel and tourism industry, Visit Tri-Cities is committed to helping Americans reclaim their vacation days and reconnect through travel.
Visit Tri-Cities.com is the premier resource for those seeking adventures, flavors, and experiences in the Heart of Washington Wine Country™. Each day this week we are posting an inspirational post to Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter for those seeking new outdoor recreational adventures, dining experiences, craft beverages, and entertaining educational experiences.
Tourism in our area is an impactful and a vital component of the Tri-Cities economy. Each year, visitors spend $489.3 million in Benton and Franklin counties which generates $51.2 million in state and local taxes. These new dollars to the community support a thriving local business economy and 4,739 jobs in the Tri-Cities. The tax revenue generated by visitors helps fund police and fire, teachers and schools, the maintenance of our roadways, and the beautification of our parks. It reduces individual Tri-Citians’ household tax burden by over $500 each year. In short, the visitor economy enhances quality of life that touches every single Tri-Citian.
