Tennessee’s No. 2 Industry – Tourism

We think its nice to see the data that supports the growth we see in our community. We’ll share information from the state below. We are working diligently with local government entities to provide more granular information specific to each city.

The Tennessee Vacation Industry produces an annual report  detailing the Department of Tourism Developments initiatives. This report runs from July to June, the most up to date report is from July 2018 to June 2019. Fiscal 2020 will be release sometime in September, per the previous years release.

“As Tennessee’s No. 2 industry, tourism has had another exceptional year, continuing to break visitation records and exceed economic impact numbers year over year. Tennessee’s skyrocketing growth is due in great part to key tourism partners throughout the state who invest in new attractions, groundbreaking expansions and important improvements.”


Tourism: Tennessee’s Economic Growth Engine , states “The results are undeniable:tourism is working in Tennessee. As the state’s leading service industry, tourism generated a record $1.81B in state and local tax revenues in 2018.”


We look forward to providing local data as it becomes available to us!
