Summer is just around the corner, and everyone is ready to travel.
To help spur tourism in Champaign County, the Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Bureau partnered with Ohio and joined nearly 100 other attractions from across the state for the 2022 Ohio Tourism Day, held on May 11 at the Ohio Statehouse in Columbus.
About 1,000 people, looking to make summer plans, attended the event.
Every year, Ohio Tourism Day celebrates Ohio’s tourism industry and provides the opportunity for consumers to plan their Ohio vacations while visiting with tourism destinations and attractions throughout the state. The Champaign County Visitors Bureau set up a display and talked to potential visitors to the county eager to learn more about all the exciting things to do in the area.
“Our time at Ohio Tourism Day could be an economic boost for our region,” said Sara Neer, Executive Director of the Champaign County Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Bureau. “Our team met with hundreds of potential first-time visitors as well as individuals and families who plan to take a trip to Champaign County, and also spend time at nearby restaurants, retailers, hotels and other attractions.”
