Tourism is one of the largest industries in the City & County of Denver, and in the State of Colorado. Visitors stimulate the local economy and benefit hotels, meeting facilities, attractions, restaurants, cultural institutions, tour companies, transportation providers, local farmers, and countless other businesses. Without dedicated funding from local and state governments to promote tourism, its economy shrinks - fewer people come to visit, reducing the money that enters our economy.
