That tourist in downtown Franklin just saved us $322

Did you know that in an average Williamson County day, tourists spend $687,890?? As a result of this local tourist spending, each Williamson County household pays $322 less in local and state taxes. Oh, and 2,250 jobs are created.

((…according to the latest "fact sheet" compiled by Dr. Steve Morse, Director and Economist for the Tourism Institute at the University of Tennessee Knoxville. According to the report, which analyzes 2007 visitor spending in Tennessee, tourists spent an average $687,890 per day on hotels, transportation, restaurants, retail, recreation and entertainment in Williamson County.))
