A Celebration of National Travel and Tourism Week in Northern Minnesota
This morning we took a tour of northern MN in celebration of National Travel and Tourism Week. Tourism is a $15 billion dollar industry in MN and generates more than 265,000 jobs - making up for 11% of private sector employment. Today we visited with the fine folks that work in the tourism industry in northern MN.
