This is National Tourism Week… and the Dyersville area is featuring a fun way for young families to get involved.
While many local residents may not consider our area of the state to be a tourism “hot spot”, Dyersville Chamber Assistant Director and Tourism Coordinator Jessica Pape says tourism is actually an eight billion dollar industry in Iowa. And many of those popular tourist attractions are right here in our own backyard.
To encourage families to get out and explore what the area has to offer, the Dyersville Chamber is once again offering its “Hometown Tourist” program.
Students who visit at least five of those frequent tourist stops will be entered to win a tourism basket from local attractions. And they may be surprised at what they’ll learn about their own community.
National Tourism Week runs through Saturday.
