The Calvert County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) recognized the week of May 1-7, 2022 as National Travel & Tourism Week in Calvert County.
Travel has a positive effect on Calvert County’s economic prosperity and image abroad. For 2020, tourism improved the local economy by providing labor income of $74.9 million, 1,607 jobs and $16.3 million in adjusted sales and use taxes.
The tourism industry suffered significant setbacks in 2020 and 2021 due to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, but local sites, attractions, hotels, restaurants and the workforce that supports them remain committed to a strong and enthusiastic comeback in 2022. Welcoming visitors from near and far has always been, and always will be, the enduring character of the travel industry in Calvert County.
The BOCC invites citizens to recognize the critical role this industry plays in Calvert County.
