Tourism Impact in Lafourche Parish
Travel matters, and it improves Lafourche Parish in ways that have a wide-reaching impact on our community. It is critical to our economy and jobs. In the last year, travelers spent $72 million dollars at our businesses creating $2.75 million in local tax revenue. Tourism supports 1,100 jobs within the parish and it also has an impact that we do not always see: travel can strengthen families, foster hometown pride, and build bridges that connect us with one another.
