As a result of focused destination development efforts, community and business leaders have been ignited and are working passionately to develop their tourism economy through community-based projects across the state. These targeted efforts have led to new trail systems, businesses and large-scale recreational events; better local customer service, and ultimately, a better Oregon.  Travel Oregon is documenting and spotlighting these success stories around the state.
