Tourism is alive and well in Rome and Floyd County. This is the message of Lisa Smith, Executive Director of the Greater Rome Convention and Visitors Bureau, who attests that the recent flurry of activities locally has drawn many visitors to this tourist-driven community, providing local businesses with an economic shot in the arm.
Smith states that tourism had an economic impact of $149 million on Rome and Floyd County in 2016. She anticipates that the numbers for 2017 will be released early next Spring. Day visitors typically spend about $59 while they are here, while overnight visitors spend about $189.
