Each year in Connecticut, traveler spending drives $15.5 billion in business sales, generates $959 million in state/local tax revenues, and directly supports over 84,000 jobs. But sharing the natural beauty, cultural richness and diverse experiences of Connecticut is more than a numbers game. In fact, we consider the businesses and attractions that make up the Connecticut tourism industry — such as hotels, restaurants, museums, parks and more — as our partners in working to share with the world just what makes our state so great.
