PIERRE, S.D.–The final numbers won’t be in for awhile, but they don’t need be for South Dakota Tourism Secretary Jim Hagen to draw some conclusions.

He says the summer of 2021 was a banner year for tourism and travel in the state….

And some very preliminary numbers bear that out….

And Hagen says South Dakota is positioned to keep the momentum going…

Final tourism numbers will be released in January at the Governor’s Conference on Tourism in Pierre.
