What bad economy? Tourism's fine in Nashville

October 1, 2008

Shopkeepers in the Brown County tourism center of Nashville are seeing little impact from the weak economy. Rather, some say business is up, according to The Herald-Times of Bloomington.

Tourists are staying closer to home instead of embarking on long, costly trips, with some opting for Brown County over Gatlinburg, Tenn., and other destinations in the southeast.

The innkeepers tax has remained steady and in some cases has increased, and a company that books cabins said it could book 500 more cabins if they were available the third weekend of this month, when fall leaf colors are expected to peak.
