Brighter days for tourism

8628092700?profile=RESIZE_710xWe are in the middle of South Florida’s prime weather months. COVID-19 has meant fewer tourists, but plenty of people still are finding their way to South County beaches, and an upswing in tourism may be imminent. ‘Tourism is in recovery but is not as strong as we had hoped,’ Palm Beach Tourist Development Council Executive Director Glenn Jergensen wrote in an email to The Coastal Star. ‘The bright side is 80% of Americans are ready to begin traveling over the coming months, and summer — which is our drive-market season — could be strong as folks get vaccines and decide to take a trip.’
