With miles of waterway meandering through, Roane County is an ideal location for adventure.
That’s why local officials are eyeing the possibility of attracting adventure tourism businesses by creating an adventure tourism zone.
“It hopefully will make Tennessee a destination for adventure tourists, which is huge,” said Pam May, director of marketing and tourism for The Roane Alliance.
“It is a huge market,” May added. “Right now, it gives tax incentives to businesses moving to the zone or already in the zone.”
