Cache Valley sees sizeable increase in tourism

Tourism continues to thrive in Logan City and Cache County. Cache Valley Visitor’s Bureau director Julie Hollist told Logan’s Municipal Council Tuesday that much of her funding comes from the Transit Room Tax. She said hopefully that tax money will increase each year by two or three percent, but this year it was almost 20 percent.

Hollist shared some statistics to illustrate the number of people requesting information about and coming to Cache Valley.

“In 2013 our requests of information were almost 17,000,” Hollist said. “Among countries requesting the most amount of information were Canada, India, Germany, United Kingdom and Russia.

“Top states (requesting information) were California, Texas, Florida, Utah, and Washington. We had, for people who signed the guest register in my office, 31 countries, 52 states and territories, and we’re still mad because we missed West Virginia.”

Hollist said she hopes to make certain that West Virginia is included this year.
