Division of Tourism

welcome sign
The St. Mary’s County Division of Tourism is charged with increasing the economic impact of travel and tourism activities through resident and non-resident spending. To accomplish this mission, the Division executes a full range of marketing, public relations, and promotional programs.

While striving to achieve an increase in tourism activity, the Division is guided by two objectives. First, preserve our heritage and enhance our natural, cultural, and recreational resources through conservation, education, revitalization, preservation, and tourism development. Second, provide for the increase of tourism-related revenue to the public and private sector through the development, marketing, and promotion of our local sites, businesses, events, and attractions. In order to meet these objectives the Division maintains partnerships with various organizations and develops an annual marketing plan outlining programs to be implemented.
