In case you hadn’t heard, tourism in South Carolina is now a $20 billion industry that supports one in every 10 jobs and generates $1.5 billion in state and local tax revenues.  These numbers represent a 6% increase in tourism activity in 2015 over 2014, and demonstrate a fourth consecutive record year of growth in South Carolina.
