WHY TOURISM MATTERS

Tourism is one of the most powerful drivers of Colorado’s economy, creating jobs faster than any other industry sector while fueling business income and tax revenues that support everything from schools to transportation to municipal services. In 2017, Colorado attracted a record 84.7 million visitors, plus 1 million international visitors, who collectively spent $20.9 billion and generated $1.28 billion in state and local taxes.
