Tourism in Wayne County brings in over $33 million, up 4.5% in 2012
As the summer travel and tourism season is fast approaching, Wayne County received some great news earlier this week, as Kentucky’s Travel and Tourism Industry released their economic impact numbers for the past year. Wayne County, a member of the KY’s Southern Shoreline Region, increased travel direct expenditures from $20,508,364.00 in 2011, to $21,431,240.00 in 2012, while total travel expenditures also increased to $33,689,909.00, after totaling $32,239,148.00 the previous year.

“I think this shows our marketing efforts are paying off and we hope those numbers continue to improve. We increased over 4.5 percent from last year, which is better than the state average and our three year growth totals over 11 percent,” said Wayne County Judge/Executive Greg Rankin.

Wayne County finished 4th in the 10-county Southern Shoreline region, as Pulaski County paced the area with $75,584,816.00, followed by Taylor, Russell and Wayne Counties. Adair, Clinton, Cumberland, McCreary, Casey and Green Counties, rounded-out the list.

“Our Southern Shoreline Region reported a 3.2 percent growth from 2011, which we were above that and Wayne County has increased over 3.1 million in direct expenditures the past three years. We want to continue to market Wayne County and Lake Cumberland in our target areas, I really think we can have an even better year in 2013,” said Wayne County Development/Tourism director Shannon Hutchinson.

The economic study and impact was prepared by Certec, Inc. for the Kentucky Tourism, Arts and Heritage Cabinet and was released earlier this tourism season.
