Outside recreation a part of tourism in Huron County throughout pandemic


The Huron County Tourism Development Officer introduced a new tourism brochure.

Rick Sickinger says they haven’t printed a brochure for the past two years because of the pandemic.

Sickinger says one of the things they’ve really noticed during the pandemic has been the number of people looking for outdoor recreation.

“Obviously Huron County is well positioned for this trend, between our hiking trails, golf courses, beaches, paddling, canoeing and fishing, we’re really well positioned as an outdoor activity destination,” said Sickinger.

“We’ve also seen people wanting to go to smaller, quieter, maybe less-discovered destinations, and I certainly don’t think we hid under a rock or could be classified as undiscovered, but for a lot of people, we still are.” relatively new travel destination.”

Huron County’s food and beverage industry is also attracting more visitors each year, and he says people still strive to connect where their food comes from and have that farm-to-table experience.
