The summer tourism season is winding down, but there is concern in the industry that it may not be as profitable as it could have been.
Deanna Richeson is the CEO of the Michigan Lodging and Tourism Association. She says Michigan’s summer tourism season was strong overall.
But she’s concerned that a growing number school districts are starting classes in August.
“When we have our school children returning to school prior to Labor Day that will cut into those revenues enjoyed by the tourism industry,” says Richeson.
