Tourism generates and continues to grow significant revenue that is integral to Maryland’s economic vitality. In Fiscal Year 2017, visitors to Maryland spent nearly $17.3 billion on travel, an increase of more than 4 percent over the previous year. That visitor spending is an important revenue generator for both state and local governments, generating $2.35 billion in taxes last year. That increase in revenues is driven by the fact that Maryland welcomed 42.1 million domestic visitors, an increase of 4 percent from 40.5 million the previous year. And last year, employees in tourism-related jobs around the state earned $5.7 billion in wages.
