From the Nisqually Wildlife Refuge to the Mima Mounds, Thurston County is a beautiful and diverse place to explore. On Monday, November 23, join Commissioner Romero and her guest, Olympia Lacey Tumwater Visitor and Convention Bureau (OLTVCB) Director Shauna Stewart, for coffee. You will learn about the resources the OLTVCB have available for local business owners who are working to attract travelers.
The OLTVCB is a non-profit organization funded by hotel and motel lodging taxes and membership investments to develop and market Thurston County as a visitor destination. The tourism industry in Washington State employs over 150,000 people and generates $16.9 billion annually for the state’s economy. Agritourism attractions, small businesses, hotels, and restaurants are just a few of the local industries that benefit from travel to our region.
