Tourism grows in Colorado - "Colorado tourism has regained its momentum after a detour 15 years ago knocked it off track. A renewed effort to advertise the state with funds committed for that purpose has helped propel the state's tourism industry back to its pre-detour levels. For the first time, the number of visitors to Colorado has surpassed a 1992 record set shortly before state funding for advertising was slashed. Since funding was restored in 2000, efforts by the Colorado Tourism Office have slowly gained ground, and the office has come close to or exceeded many of its goals in the past three year ... Renewed funding for the state's tourism efforts was won in 2000 after a Longwoods study showed the state had lost $2 billion in tourism dollars in 1997 and experienced a 30 percent decrease in market share between 1993 and 1997."
