North of Philadelphia, Bucks County is celebrating their record-breaking amount of visitors.  

In 2018, the county welcomed 8.15 million visitors, an increase of 1.6 percent from 2017 and achieved a record-breaking $1.1 billion in total economic impact. With such numbers, the hospitality industry is taking full advantage.  

As Bucks County tourist status rises, for the travelers who are searching for a local experience, Bucks County is filled with breweries, independent restaurants, and hidden gems to visit.  

Because of all of the tourism growth, Bucks County has also seen rapid growth in businesses across the county. Particular flourishing businesses include event spaces, inns and hotels, markets, casinos, and concert venues. With so much revenue, the county is also closely working with several other economic development agencies to maintain their hospitality industry.  

As the county continues to become a more popular travel destination, Visit Bucks County has found that maintaining a social media presence is crucial to their relevance. With so many vacations being inspired by what is seen by travelers online, Visit Bucks County works with influencers and marketers to make sure they are putting their best foot forward online. For those not online, they reach visitors by hosting in-market activations and events in nearby cities.  

While Bucks County offers an array of opportunities and experiences, one of their most popular events is countryside weddings, as the county is an ideal location between Philadelphia and New York City. Yet, with river towns, country roads, historical sites, and outdoor adventures on the Delaware River, visitors are sure to be treated to a plethora of activities. 

The widely recognized Chateau on the Lake Resort, Spa, & Convention Center of Branson, Missouri, has captured the coveted “Best of MidAmerica Award” from Meetings Today magazine.
