Chuck Thibeault is the Executive Director of Central Counties Tourism. He helps motivate the development of tourism capacity through the region. Chuck and Marion discuss tourism in depth and why it matters, how to create a desirable destination, and what makes a tourist — is it distance traveled, amount spent, or things to do done. Chuck also explains the importance of the arts community to visitors and how to maximize those aspects to draw guests from around the region and beyond.
