One Response to Governor’s Report: tourism by the numbers III

    Glad to do our part, we have been to 5 out of each list, and just this morning booked reservations to camp in the Smokies for this weekend. Tennessee has a lot to offer, and 9 out of 10 of our trips are to your great state! – susan from georgia
