Tourism inquiries skyrocket for Scotts Bluff County

Tourism inquiries for Scotts Bluff County have recently taken a huge jump, and Tourism Director Brenda Leisy says she can't pinpoint exactly why. However, since she started in the position a little over a year ago, she has increased the amount of outside advertising being done in various publications. And she has also varied the types of publications she is advertising in.

Whatever the reason for the increase, Leisy says something is working. Leisy says when she first got here they were getting maybe one or two inquiries a month. But now, she says they are getting hundreds of them. Leisy says she is now devoting a good part of her time to addressing the individuals and families that would like to come vacation here.

Leisy says a lot of them are on their way to the Black Hills or Yellowstone, but she says even if they only come and spend one or two nights, Scotts Bluff County Tourism will have done their job.
