This valuable information was presented to the Erie and Ottawa County Visitors Bureaus recently in a report on the 2011 travel year. The biennial report was coordinated by the Ohio Tourism Division and executed by Tourism Economics. All 88 Ohio counties have the opportunity to participate in this study. The $1.6 billion in economic impact reported is up more than 13% from the last economic impact study, done for the 2009 travel year, when the nation was still recovering from the economic downturn of 2008.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
