Why Local Tourism Matters

Posted by: Remington Hill on June 6, 2023

As travelers, we're always on the lookout for new and exciting destinations to explore. But sometimes, the best adventures are right in our own backyard. That's why local tourism is such an important part of any community. It allows us to discover the unique character and charm of our own region while supporting local businesses and creating jobs. In Festival Country Indiana, we're lucky to have a vibrant and diverse tourism industry, with plenty of opportunities to explore and enjoy all that our community has to offer just south of Indy. 

When you choose to support local tourism, you're not just helping the local economy. You're also getting a chance to experience the unique character and charm of a community. Whether you're exploring a new city, relaxing in a rural area, or enjoying the beauty of a park, there's something special about finding the beauty close to home.

In the communities of Festival Country, we're fortunate to have a vibrant and diverse tourism industry. From the historic charm of Franklin to the diverse restaurants in Greenwood, to the renowned craft beer in Bargersville, when you choose to support local businesses and attractions, you're helping to create jobs and support our local economy.

So the next time you're planning a trip, consider exploring your own backyard. You never know what hidden gems you might discover, and you'll be supporting your community in the process.
