Gov. Chris Sununu kicked off the fall tourism season Thursday afternoon with the ceremonial first apple pick at an orchard in Chester, and state officials announced they forecast $1.5 billion in tourist spending from more than 3 million out-of-state, overnight visitors.
Last year’s forecast called for the same amount of visitors spending $1.4 billion, which at the time marked a 4.5 percent increase in visitors and a 5 percent increase in spending. Each year, the fall season accounts for a quarter of the state’s annual visitation.
