EXPERIENCE THE DELIGHTFULLY CREATIVE WORLD OF VACAVILLE ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT.
As part of National Travel and Tourism Week, Visit Vacaville celebrated the theme of "Then and Now" with a nod to the aviation history of Vacaville and its impact on tourism in the town.
The event was covered by the local paper, The Vacaville Reporter: Tourism breakfast celebrates aviation ‘then and now’ in Vacaville
Echoing the Then and Now theme, the impacts of tourism in Vacaville and throughout Solano County were shared at the event, truly demonstrating the far reaching effects that visitors have on the area. In Vacaville, total Transient Occupancy Taxes, or TOT, were over $1.7 million in 2017. In Solano County, direct travel spending reached $756.3 million in 2017, with 9,140 people employed in tourism related jobs. And perhaps most impressively, each US household would pay an additional $1,300 in taxes without the tax revenue generated by travel & tourism.
