The Hood River County Chamber of Commerce has received a study showing the financial impact of visitors on the City of Hood River’s economy. Chamber Executive Director Mike Glover says they have always had breakdowns for the County from Travel Oregon but not specific to the City, so the Chamber asked Dean Runyon and Associates, who authored the Travel Oregon study, to put together those numbers. Glover says the report confirms much of what those in Hood River felt…that tourism in the community has grown substantially over the last five years. The report shows each overnight visitor spends an average of $91 per day while in the City of Hood River, and that there were 226,000 overnight person trips in 2015. Travel-generated employment in Hood River represents about six percent of all employment in the City.
