Recreation is a win-win for Iowa
You can get all kinds of ideas for your Iowa vacation at www.traveliowa.com, the state’s informative, colorful, interactive tourism Web site. You’ll find a calendar of events, regional attractions, places to stay and trip planning tools.
Travel and recreation have a lot of offer Iowans of all ages—and it boosts our economy too. Tourism in Iowa generates more than $6 billion in expenditures annually, supports 62,000 jobs statewide and generates $321 million in state taxes.
During the 2012 session, we worked to increase recreational opportunities stimulate Iowa’s economy by:
• Helping communities promote local attractions
• Investing in watershed projects that improve the quality of Iowa streams, rivers and lakes
• Expanding recreational trails for walking, biking, boating and snowmobiling
So get on out there this summer and enjoy all that makes Iowa a great place to live, work and play!Posted Jul. 3rd, 2012 at 1:25 pm by Senate Staff
