IMPACT OF TOURISM
A record 10.8 million visitors saw Fort Worth in FY 2022. Direct visitor spending increased 25% for the second consecutive year. And for the first time, tourism’s total economic impact exceeded $3 billion. The 30,000 jobs supported by tourism would fill Dickies Arena twice, making hospitality one of our leading industries.
Visitor spending generated $125 million in local tax revenues. Without tourism, the average Fort Worth homeowner would need to pay an additional $709 in property taxes to make up the difference.
