Despite high gas prices; local tourism officials say early signs are pointing to a strong spring and summer tourism season. The President of the Central Oregon Visitors Association, Alana Audette says they are gearing up for all those visitors and hopefully all those dollars coming to Central Oregon. "We're fortunate to be a year round destination. It’s going to keep us busy. But yes, about 75% of all of the tourism volume visits are between June and September, so we are coming into the peak season; that is if spring ever arrives but were ever hopeful, but we're looking forward to a strong year.” Audette was a recent guest on KBND's “Your Town.” She says even though the tourism experiences in cities and places throughout Central Oregon may be very diverse and different, the region is pretty cohesive and makes a point to work together to be stronger overall.
