We’re into the last days of summer, and Missouri tourism officials are totaling up how the nearly $13-Billion industry did. Tourism Director John Robinson says it looks as though the state got good growth in an industry that has its biggest season in the summer. Robinson says an unusually cool summer might have hurt the portions of the tourism industry that rely on hot, sticky weather: water parks, pools, and such. But he points out that same cool weather helps bring more people out to other outdoor activities. Robinson says the fall and spring are also big opportunities to bring people down from northern locations for milder weather here.
