Duchesne County Promotes Tourism

Duchesne County Promotes Tourism

Hidden Treasures! Vacation Pleasures! Duchesne County’s new motto is backed up with resources on the county’s new promotional website www.visitduchesnecounty.com. The website launched just this week and includes a bounty of information on where to stay, play, eat and relax in Duchesne County. Speaking this week at a community outreach forum, Duchesne County Commissioner Ron Winterton said that the county is focused on diversifying the economy to counter the downturn in the oil and gas industry. Winterton says Duchesne County is working similarly to Uintah County by turning to recreation and expanding through advertising. There are 10 destination resorts in Duchesne County and their goal is to highlight them and increase tourism. Visitduchesnecounty.com highlights wildlife, hunting opportunities, outdoor activities, vacation destinations, and annual events.
