Economic Development

So much of Kent County’s success comes directly from our tourism industry. Based on a 2021 analysis done by Rockport Analytics & Longwoods International, tourism in the state of Delaware brings over 28.3 million visitors that contribute $5.9 billion in visitor and vacation spending, which creates over 47,000 jobs for our economy! Tourism makes up our fourth largest state employment industry, and without this critical segment, Delaware households would pay an additional $1,608 in their taxes.
