CHENANGO CTY – Chenango County may not be a visitor mecca like the Finger Lakes or Adirondacks, but according to Audrey Robinson tourism still plays an important part in the local economy.
“Tourism does make an impact on Chenango County,” said Robinson, who serves as the county’s Tourism Coordinator, in addition to her role as Marketing and Communications Coordinator for Commerce Chenango.
But convincing area residents and leaders of that isn’t always easy.
“I think that most people don’t take tourism here seriously,” she explained. “They don’t see Chenango County as a tourist destination.”
