Ohio tourism showsThe 2015 data released by TourismOhio shows continued tourism growth and underscores the industry’s significance as an economic driver for the state.

 
During 2015, Ohio saw an estimated 207 million visits, an increase of 7 million from 2014. Of those 207 million total trips, 41 million were overnight trips in Ohio last year.

 
Research shows that overnight visitors spend, on average, more than three times the amount spent per day by daytrip visitors ($110 for daytrips vs. $354 for overnight trips).

 
Direct visitor spending in 2015 was estimated at $33 billion, $2 billion more than the previous year. The increase in visitor spending generated approximately $42 billion in sales, up from $40 billion in 2014.

 
Additionally, tourism-related jobs are on the rise. In 2015, tourism supported about 420,000 Ohio jobs, an increase of 8,000 jobs from 2014.

 
The research, conducted by Longwoods International and Tourism Economics, allows TourismOhio to track industry performance and gauge visitor trends for the purpose of marketing Ohio’s distinct travel assets.
