The U.S. Department of Commerce says tourism nationally is on pace to set a record in 2012.  A Wednesday report from the department says tourism and related sales increased by 2.1% in the second quarter, after a 4.9% increase in the first quarter. The agency also says Travel and tourism-related activities also increased, on average, more than $1.1 billion a month during the first seven months of 2012.  One very solid contributor to the strength of tourism this summer has been international visitation.  Department officials say a long-term drop in the dollar’s value has been the main lure for foreign travelers to the US.  Corresponding statistics were not immediately available from Wyoming although local officials say bookings and visitation in general were up slightly the past several weeks in Jackson.
