West Michigan Tourism On The Rise [VIDEO]
Where did you spend Labor Day weekend?
More people are staying in Michigan and taking advantage of our lakes, beaches, campgrounds, and entertainment. Tourism is up around West Michigan and local businesses have been enjoying the boost.
One of the biggest bonuses of staying local is the money it saves on gas. Money saved on gas can be used for fun, and there is no shortage of places to have summertime fun in West Michigan.
Many area communities are seeing a boost to tourism. Experience Grand Rapids says hotel revenues were up 15% through July. Lakeshore communities are also seeing an increase in tourism.
My family was on the same plan this year. We made a number of trips, but never went outside of Michigan.
