"We're ready to hustle and make magic happen!"

Our duty as a non-profit organization is to provide information, resources, and support for the hospitality and tourism industry. We work to attract visitors, groups, and events that generate overnight lodging in Columbia County. It's our depth of knowledge and strong relationships within the community that help foster the best possible visit experience. Tourism provides significant economic value to Columbia County. Visitor spending generates taxes through lodging, food/beverage, transportation, entertainment, and other services. By serving our visitors best, we can support our beloved county!
