LaPorte County leads the entire state for growth in tourism.

That's according to Jack Arnett....executive director of the LaPorte County Convention and

Visitors Bureau.

He says the economic impact of tourism in 2016 was 700 million dollars in

LaPorte County.

That was close to a ten percent increase from 2014.

He says no other county saw its percentages go up any higher....

Arnett says the money coming here from tourism is now double what it

was in 1998.
