More money is being spent in Washington County for tourism-related activities, according to numbers released recently from the Kentucky Tourism, Arts and Heritage Cabinet.
Direct tourism expenditures went up $101,340 from 2010 to 2011, according to the report. Over $2.6 million dollars were spent in 2011 on hotels, meals and fuel.
Kathy Elliott, the Springfield Tourism Commission executive director, attributes the increase to the collection of the restaurant and lodging tax and the marketing that has resulted.
