Visit Cheyenne CEO Darren Rudloff says these are good times for the local travel industry.

Figures from Visit Cheyenne show a 7 percent increase in visitation to the county in 2013, which is roughly double the increase seen statewide for last year. Rudloff also says travelers spent $358 million in Laramie county last year, supporting 3,000 jobs and providing almost $7 million in local tax revenues. He says all indicators are pointing to another banner year for the local travel industry this year.

Rudloff says expectations of relatively small increases in gas prices and a generally improving regional economy bode well for the local travel industry in 2014. He also says preliminary indications are that Cheyenne Frontier Days should do well this year, which is always an important factor in the local tourism outlook.
