Youth Sports and the Mahoning River Boost Tourism

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio– The Mahoning Valley draws several youth sports tournaments to the area and those tournaments are a big boost when it comes to economic impact.

“Somebody that travels to your area on a day trip spends a little more than $100 a day,” says Linda Macala, executive director of the Mahoning County Convention and Visitors Bureau. “When they stay over night that figure jumps to over $300.”

This is an excerpt from our ‘Tuesday Sit Down’ with Macala. Watch the full interview here.
