Shine the Light on Tourism
- This event has passed.
Visit Brookings invites the community to shine red in support for the hundreds of our friends, families and neightbors whose livelihoods depend on tourism during National Travel & Tourism Week May 2-7, 2022. Red is the official color of NTTW.
Join the Visit Brookings office, the Children’s Museum of South Dakota and other attractions in shining the light on tourism.
Tourism is economic development, creating jobs, generating sales and providing tax dollars for the residents of our community and state. During 2021, visitors spent $92.76 dollars in Brookings County. That translates into $7.18 million in tax revenue. 1,209 jobs are directly supported by the tourism industry in Brookings, providing over $25 million in income.
