As Tennessee’s No. 2 industry, tourism generated a record $24 billion in domestic travel spending in 2021, marking the largest visitor spending nationally in Tennessee’s history. Tourism helps drive economic development and job growth, which helped restore and grow livelihoods for Tennesseans. Tennessee’s skyrocketing growth is due in great part to key tourism partners throughout the state who invest in new attractions, groundbreaking expansions and important improvements. Those partnerships and efforts are reflected in our Annual Report and Economic Impact reports.
