Help a Tourist, Help your Town
Over half a million people spent the night in Wyoming’s Wind River Country/Fremont County in 2016. Every overnight stay, every stop at a gas station, every meal, every wander through a gallery or museum in Fremont County benefits the community in the form of spending, job creation, and tax collections.
More importantly, every personal encounter between a local person and visitor is an opportunity to encourage a tourist to stick around a little longer and to remember their time here fondly enough to return and tell others about Wind River Country.
“Our ambassadors are the people who make travelers want to share their Wind River Country experience with their friends and family,” said Paula McCormick, director of the Wind River Visitors Council. “Whether you work in the hospitality industry or not, you can help elevate the positive economic impact of tourism on your community.”
