More funding is being channeled into Rutherford County, thanks to tourist staying in local hotels and motels.
The same tune was heard in January of this year as well.
This past January, the Rutherford County Chamber of Commerce released the following statement, “We are thrilled to report that the December year-end STR report showed that Rutherford County hotels sold approximately 1.2 million rooms last year with 267,000 additional rooms sold in 2021 compared to 2020. Due to the return of sporting events, conferences, corporate business and individual leisure travelers, county-wide hotel demand/room-nights sold were at pre-pandemic levels when compared to 2019.“
It appears that visitors are returning to Rutherford County at pre-pandemic levels, according to the Chamber of Commerce.
The STR report, also known as the Smith Travel Research report, is a monthly report that highlights the increase or decrease of tourists in different areas throughout the country.
