Heritage tourism holds promise

June 3, 2014
By AMY CATANIA , Historic Saranac Lake

Saranac Lake's future is looking brighter these days, and one promising area of economic growth is tourism. Tourism is one of the largest employers in the United States, providing 7.4 million jobs. Domestic and international travelers spend more than $758 billion in the United States. People come to Saranac Lake for many reasons - the beautiful natural environment, the thriving arts scene and Can-Am Rugby weekend, just to name a few. We can expect an increase in all tourism areas as the Hotel Saranac comes back. In particular, we anticipate more tourists seeking a certain type of visitor experience - heritage tourism.
