SC Tourism Making Strong Comeback


After years of struggling through the recession and its murky aftermath, tourism in the Palmetto State is on the rise again.

Hotel room sales, admissions to state parks and other tourism-related factors have now met and even surpassed pre-recession levels of 2007, according to reports by the S.C. Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism.

The recovery mirrors the state’s overall economic rebound. The University of South Carolina’s economic outlook report released last week predicts job growth to increase by 1.7 percent next year. It also predicts growth in the state’s key industries, including tourism.

New growth in the most popular tourist spots such as Charleston and Myrtle Beach signals that the state’s tourism industry has not only made a comeback from the recession, but that South Carolina has become one of the top travel destinations in the region.
