Jim Martin"Each year, American Music Theatre welcomes guests from all across North America and beyond. They are the lifeblood of the Theatre, which in turn positively affects the livelihoods of our employees and the community as a whole. By working cooperatively with local hotels, restaurants, retailers, attractions, and other partners in the area, countless businesses and individuals benefit from the leisure and business travelers who pump vital financial resources into Lancaster County."

"While my supportive local customers are terrific and necessary, the added financial boost and fresh excitement we receive from our many tourists means the difference between simply scraping by and running a thriving business. This, in turn, feeds the enthusiasm and effort we put into our shop, which creates a positive experience for locals and guests alike."

"I operate several hotel properties in the Lancaster, PA market. These hotels rely heavily on tourism to fill our hotels when other market segments are not travelling. Without tourism, time periods like summer and weekends would be negatively impacted."

"As pork butchers, specializing in handcrated charcuterie, we've found it's hard for tourists to take our products home with them. But many of them fall in love with our concept and what we offer, so they share it on social media and their local friends. So we actually gain more customers locally because of the out-of-towners sharing their experiences.
