Gambling & Shopping Could Help Boost Tourist Numbers


Gambling and shopping could take their place along Lincoln as key attractions to draw more visitors to Springfield.

 

That’s according to Mayor Mike Houston, who is hoping to build on an increase in tourism numbers locally last year.

 

Houston says that although the number of visitors to the city is up, too many are spending just a day here and then leaving.

 

The mayor hopes a planned outlet mall near Scheels and the addition of video gambling at liquor establishments will give people more reason to plan an overnight stay, or even one that lasts several days.
