Chamber Releases New Visitor’s Guide to Promote “Local Flavor”

LAWRENCEBURG, TENN.— The Lawrence County Chamber of Commerce has released its Official Lawrence County Visitor’s Guide. Published as the first Visit Lawrenceburg-branded guide, this bi-annual project serves as the county’s primary tourism advertising and promotional publication with 10,000 copies printed and distributed across the country.

According to the State of Tennessee’s 2021 Economic Impact report, tourism brings in $25.81M in direct visitor spending to Lawrence County each year with over $70,000 in daily expenditures. At the top of this spending breakdown was Food & Beverage, accounting for 33% of annual visitor spending. This year’s guide encourages visitors to explore Lawrence County’s local restaurants and flavors along with other top attractions.
