WEDNESDAY: GOV. MALLOY CONTINUES "STILL REVOLUTIONARY" TOURISM CAMPAIGN IN NORTHWESTERN CONN.
Will Visit Destinations in Goshen, Morris, Salisbury & Lakeville
(HARTFORD, CT) - On Wednesday, Governor Dannel P. Malloy will continue his promotional visits of state tourism destinations with stops scheduled in Goshen, Morris, Salisbury and Lakeville. 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 stop at Mohawk Bison Farm, where a rare white buffalo was born in June; a stop at Winvian, a unique family-owned resort that showcases segments of Connecticut's history; lunch at Chaiwalla restaurant and tea house; and finally a stop at Lime Rock Park, a historic motorsport road racing venue that first opened in 1957. Last summer, Governor Malloy signed a letter in support of Lime Rock Park being designated a National Historic Landmark.
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.
