Idaho draws—and awes—hundreds of thousands of visitors each year. The influx of tourism dollars is a huge boon to our state economy, directly supporting businesses that offer outstanding recreation, lodging diversity, fine dining, and more. Specifically, according to the U.S. Travel Association, Idaho’s $3.7 billion tourism industry employs more than 45,500 Idahoans and generates $475 million in local, state, and federal tax revenues. This is equivalent to saving every Idaho household $740 in taxes annually. Idaho Commerce’s Tourism Development team takes the lead in showcasing all the ways people can play in the Gem State through advertising, public relations, social networking, maintaining the volumes of information on our main tourism website, Visit Idaho, and more.
