Tourism Panel Briefed on Local Attractions
The Legislative Committee on Tourism, Arts and Culture came to New Bedford on Friday to learn more about the creative economy in the region. They held a forum at the Whaling Museum, and listened to stake-holders explain the region's assests.
James Russell, Director of the New Bedford Whaling Museum, says the Committee got a full picture on what the Southcoast has to offer.
The panel also heard about the work of the Chamber of Commerce, to create a new convention and Visitors Bureau for Bristol County.
The Committee briefly toured sites in the City. They also visited Battleship Cove in Fall River.
