PA Wilds Tourism Industry
Welcome to the Pennsylvania Wilds Tourism Industry website, your guide to getting your business or community involved in our region's growing tourism sector.
Visitors spend an estimated $1.7 billion in our 12 ½-county region annually, according to the latest statistics, and the Pennsylvania Wilds has one of the fastest-growing rates of tourism spending in the Commonwealth.
