Tourism is a major part of Monroe County’s economy and is trending well, according to the county tourism director. Monroe County Tourism Director Blaina Best said that tourism trends in the county “continue to be very strong” and added that she has recently added the ability to collect and keep track of specific tourism data that will help planning moving forward.

As a result of that data collection, she said Monroe County saw eight million visitors during 2022.
