Springfield Area Tourism Up 2.5 Percent Since 2011


Springfield officials say tourism numbers set a record in 2012.

 

Local sites logged more than 1.76 million visits last year, and tourism generated $388 million in economic activity… an increase of 2.5% from 2011.

 

Mayor Mike Houston says Springfield is the tourism anchor for downstate Illinois.

 

Sangamon County was the most visited destination in the state, outside of Cook and the five surrounding collar counties.
