Tourism Statistics Improve in 2018
Written by Andrew-Rossi on December 27, 2018
Winter tourism in Park County has brought in more money to the region than in years past.
That’s according to information gathered by the Park County Travel Council. According to an article in the Cody Enterprise, hotel lodging taxes collected through November showed a 16 percent increase in year-to-date dollars, and a 14 percent increase for the month of November itself as compared to last year. Total collections for the year were just over $388 thousand dollars.
Treasurer Mike Darby attributed the increase in collections to a variety of sources, including more hotel rooms open in Yellowstone National Park and price increases for nightly stays.
The Travel Council’s monthly report showed a significant increase in website visits and website conversions, as well as an increase in the number of visitors to the Powell Visitor Center.
