Celebrate National Travel + Tourism
Tourism supports 11,160 jobs and generates $1 billion dollars in Pierce County. Tourism means business: for existing companies and new development. You are a part of this important economic driver.
To celebrate the many faces and facets of our industry, the Travel Tacoma + Pierce County partnered with destination marketing organizations from around the state to nominate tourism ambassadors. These ambassadors are spreading the message of why tourism matters.
