Our Commitment to Destination Tourism

Gaston County Tourism Development and our Tourism Advisory Board, are commitment to growing the destination tourism economy and strive to delivering positive results for our visitors and partners. The nearly 6% rise in visitor spending we enjoyed in 2019 could not have happened without our abundance of tourism attractions and the dedication of our local hospitality professionals. In appreciation, our team will remain focused on optimizing all of our county’s brand experiences to drive visitation and partner economic growth.
