THURSDAY: GOV. MALLOY CONTINUES "STILL REVOLUTIONARY" TOURISM CAMPAIGN IN NORTHEASTERN CONN.
Will Visit Destinations in Ashford, Woodstock, Pomfret, Canterbury & Storrs
(HARTFORD, CT) - On Thursday, Governor Dannel P. Malloy will continue his promotional visits of state tourism destinations with stops scheduled in Ashford, Woodstock, Pomfret, Canterbury and Storrs. The visits are part of the Governor's summer-long effort to highlight the role Connecticut's hospitality, tourism and recreation attractions play in strengthening the state's overall economy.
The visits include a tour of the Hole in the Wall Gang Camp; a visit to the Mansion at Bald Hill, a historic landmark that has taken on a new life as a premiere restaurant and bed and breakfast; a stop at Roseland Cottage, a national historic landmark; lunch at the Vanilla Bean Café; a tour of Sharpe Hille Vineyard, known for its delicious homemade recipes and rare teas; a visit to the Prudence Crandall Museum; and finally a stop at the UConn Dairy Bar for a tour of the facility.
Connecticut's hospitality and tourism industry employs more than 110,000 people, generates $1.15 billion in state and local tax revenue and is responsible for $11.5 billion in spending, according to 2011 statistics.
The Governor's promotional tour follows the unveiling in May of the state's new "Still Revolutionary" marketing campaign, a new initiative that will boost revenues and draw attention to the state's distinctive attractions and extraordinary destinations through an aggressive marketing campaign. The Governor has since made similar promotional visits to a variety of tourist destinations throughout the state.
