Tourism is giving Cayuga County's lodging industry a boost, but there are outside factors that present challenges for local hotels and inns.
The state of lodging in the county was the topic at the monthly Wednesday Morning Roundtable. Four panelists participated in the discussion moderated by Laura Coburn.
Tourism provides $397 in tax relief per household in Cayuga County, Coburn said in her opening remarks. The county receives additional benefits when visitors stay here. Visitors who make day trips to the county spend an average of $260. That total increases to $1,244 when visitors opt for overnight stays.
