BENEZETTE – In an effort to promote tourism, Governor Tom Corbett visited the Elk Country Visitor Center on Thursday afternoon to highlight the Pennsylvania Wilds as a top destination for travelers as well as to mark the 100 years since elk were reintroduced into the region.
"Unique tourist destinations like the Elk Country Visitor Center support Pennsylvania's tourism industry and help create and sustain local jobs," Corbett said. "Attendance at the center has grown to 200,000 tourists annually, each spending money and supporting local small businesses."
