COSHOCTON − One might think of summer as the prime time for tourism, but Coshocton County visitors stay strong through the fall thanks to many established events.

The Coshocton Visitors Bureau reported that tourism had an economic impact of more than $62.6 million in 2021 related to attractions, food and beverage, gasoline, and lodging, with $8.3 million in tax revenue. That also connects to 752 jobs and $16.4 million in wages.

Kara McIntire, social media coordinator for the CVB, said this is the first year that someone from Ohio’s 88 counties has come to her office in Roscoe Village since she followed up. They have also had visitors from 43 states and 16 countries so far in 2022.

While summer is the best time for tourism, fall is almost as active, McIntire said.
