Tourism Week in Frisco

This morning I had a great time working as a greater at the Stonebriar Westin to help promote tourism in Frisco.  Did you know:  Each U.S. household would pay $988 more in taxes without the tax revenue generated by the travel and tourism industry!

 State & DFW Travel Facts

  • The D/FW area is the #1 tourist destination in Texas
  • The D/FW area through tourism contributed over $1 billion in local & state taxes
  • Total direct travel spending in Texas was $56.7 billion
  • Tourism supports over 534,000 jobs in Texas
  • Business Travel spending in Texas is $21.7 million, which is 2nd highest share in U.S.
  • Meetings & Events Travel spending in Texas is $9.3 million, which is 2nd highest in U.S.
