Visit these attractions during Tourism Week

What better way to recognize National Tourism and Travel Week by checking out some of the very cool tours and attractions that Pasco County has to offer. If you are visiting, you'll have a great time discovering the meaning of Pasco's "It's Only Natural" slogan. If you are a local, you'll be pleasantly surprised at the unique and offbeat activities you can do in your own backyard. Check out a few below, along with these fun facts about tourism in Florida and the U.S.

Travel Industry Fun Facts

Did You Know that travel and tourism is a $1.6 trillion industry in the United States? If one dollar bill equaled a second of time, then $1.6 trillion would equal almost 51,000 years.

Did You Know that travel and tourism generates $110 billion in tax revenue for local, state and federal governments? If you place 110 billion one dollar bills end-to-end, they would circle the world 419 times.

Did You Know that each U.S. household would pay $995 more in taxes without the tax revenue generated by the travel and tourism industry? $995 will buy about five weeks of groceries for a family of four, will fill the average car with gas 17 times, or will even pay the average cost of a ticket to a Michigan vs. Ohio State football game.

Did You Know that the travel and tourism industry is one of the country's largest employers with 7.5 million jobs? You could fill the Louisiana Superdome a hundred times over with people directly employed in the industry. For more, visit the U.S. Travel Association's website.

So, what's there to do in Pasco County? Plenty! Check out some of these cool spots this summer.

Great blog on Pasco County. There is always lots to do in Pasco County. Werner-Boyce State Park is in Pasco County and one can find loads of interesting things to do with the Salt Springs Alliance, Inc group. Their website - http://www.saltspringsalliance.com/Schedule.htm
I have been on one of their moonlight walks and it was awesome.

I blog mainly about Florida on a website for The Summit Daily News in Colorado. I do have an article about Pasco County and intend to submit more exciting places to visit in Pasco county. The next time I blog about Pasco County I will add your blog link.
