Figures released Tuesday confirmed that Duluth's tourism industry continued to demonstrate robust growth in 2015.
The city's tourism tax collections topped $10 million for the first time this past year.
"We've seen amazing growth in these revenues," said Duluth Mayor Emily Larson. "The fact that we are up nearly 14 percent in hotel/motel revenues and that we're up close to 8 percent in food and beverage sales is pretty astounding in a way that really says people continue to find Duluth to be a place they want to visit and stay and play and eat and dine and do all those things that make us a great city."
