Arlington CVB Study Shows Positive Tourism Results

Almost 14 million visitors spent an estimated $1.4 billion last year in Arlington, Texas, according to a study conducted by Longwoods International. This study was prepared for the Arlington Convention & Visitor’s Bureau with a mission to provide an overview of Arlington’s tourism business in 2015. It included information about overnight and day visitors, how much visitors were spending and other relevant trends.

Local Restaurant Gives Back

One day, a customer walked into Rosa’s Fresh Pizza in Philadelphia and asked to pre-purchase a slice of pizza for a homeless person who didn’t have $1.

Now, all customers have the option to buy a $1 slice for themselves and pay another $1 to underwrite the cost of a slice for someone in need.

“[The donation process] has grown very organically from there,” says Mason Warman founder and owner of the restaurant.
