Tourism Impact : Lufkin Convention & Visitors Bureau

"Tourism makes a significant and measureable difference in Angelina County," Tara Watson-Watkins, executive director of the Lufkin Convention and Visitors Bureau, said.
"Information like this is interesting because not only does it show how tourism supports the community, it also shows how everyone in the community can play a role in supporting tourism," Watson-Watkins said. "When we held Lufkin Bistro on the same weekend as the Pineywoods Purgatory, it became a sell-out event, with more than 800 people," Watson-Watkins said. The data also shows what tourists do while visiting Angelina County, and Watson-Watkins finds that useful when promoting Angelina County as a destination. Nature-related activities, outdoor sports and sightseeing top the list of fun-filled ways visitors spend their time here, and the Lufkin and Convention and Visitors Bureau actively promotes that aspect of the Angelina County experience by distributing easy-to-read brochures and maps that help visitors navigate the lakes, rivers, marinas, trails and campsites in the area. "More than a quarter of our visitors take part in some sort of outdoor experience," Watson-Watkins said.
