Lake Tahoe Real Estate  

May 12th



By Kathryn Reed
California’s tourism industry is coming off its sixth consecutive record year, and South Lake Tahoe is part of that trend. “We are looking at an industry that is about 2.5 percent of the state’s economy,” Caroline Beteta, Visit California president and CEO, said during a conference call this week. “This tremendous growth indicates that growth in the industry will continue through 2016 and beyond.” She was lauding the stats from the annual tourism report that came out this week with numbers from 2015. Total direct travel spending in California was $122.5 billion in 2015, which is a 3.4 percent increase over 2014. “That could cover the state’s general fund for a year,” Beteta said.
The document includes South Lake Tahoe’s uptick in hotel taxes. In 2006, $11.932 million was collected; with 2015 being the first year since then to top that figure. 2015 transient occupancy tax collections were $12.708 million. In 2009, it dropped to an 11-year low of $8.271 million. To finish reading, click here.
