(WKBN) – If you are thinking of sticking closer to home this summer for your vacation, you may want to think about Trumbull County.
Wednesday, commissioners passed a proclamation naming next week Tourism Week in Trumbull County.
Travel within the county already brings in more than $550 million a year.
The goal is to let both visitors and residents know that the county has plenty to offer.
“Trumbull County has a lot to experience, between the National Packard Museum and the National McKinley Memorial Museum. We’ve got Mosquito Lake. We have the fourth largest Amish community in the U.S., is located up in the Mesopotamia area. So we have all of that and a bit more,” said Beth Kotwis Carmicheal, executive director of the Trumbull County Tourism Bureau.
Tourism Week begins on May 5, but the Trumbull County Tourism Bureau is holding its Tourism Day celebration on May 10.
From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. May 10 you can go to the Trumbull County Tourism Bureau to get help on planning a local vacation.
The Bureau is located at 321 Mahoning Ave. NW in Warren.
You can find a list of places to stay, things to do and upcoming events on the Trumbull County Tourism Bureau’s website at www.exploretrumbullcounty.com.
