Last year, the travel and tourism industry directly supported 1,410 jobs in Fremont County, resulting in $48.8 million in wages. Though 2020 tells a unique story, the trend in visitor spending from 2000 to 2020 saw a 51 percent increase. The travel industry is an essential aspect of the Fremont County economy, and that should be celebrated.
