Queen Creek Celebrates Travel & Tourism Week

Post Date:05/09/2019 12:35 pm

Tourism serves as an important driver for fiscal sustainability in Queen Creek and communities across the U.S.  Revenues generated through visitors to the community help fund important programs including public safety, parks and recreation and roadway improvements. In an effort to recognize these important industries, May 5 through 11 has been declared Travel & Tourism Week in Queen Creek. 

peachesIn addition to generating revenues, travel and tourism helps sustain jobs and an improved quality of life.

“Our unique agritainment businesses have made Queen Creek a destination for years and the additions to our Town Center continue to make our community a wonderful place to live and visit,” shared Queen Creek Mayor Gail Barney. “This week celebrates the important impact travel and tourism has on our Town and the Nation. Travel supports our economy, jobs, infrastructure, health, hometown pride and overall community.”

Travel is one of America’s largest industries and largest employers. Travel generated $2.5 trillion for the U.S. economy, and supports more than 15.7 million jobs in the U.S. Queen Creek is home to a unique tourism draw, QC Olive Millagritainment. Three of the region's key agritainment destinations are located right here in Queen Creek, the Queen Creek Olive Mill, Schnepf Farms and Hayden Flour Mill at Sossaman Farms. The agritainment industry has a significant economic impact, drawing people from across the U.S.

In addition to celebrating the impact of Travel and Tourism Week, residents are encouraged to be tourists in their own town by discovering all that Queen Creek has to offer.
