Calaveras Tourism Leaps to $205.3 Million in 2018

Angels Camp, CA...This week, Dean Runyan published its tourism numbers compiled for Visit California, and we showed a healthy pattern of continued growth for our tourism economy in Calaveras County.  Calaveras Tourism is an economic heavy hitter. Preliminary data for 2018 shows an increase of 5% from $195.5 million to $205.3 million in overall tourism spending in Calaveras County.


Calaveras County travel spending in millions



Visitors spent most on restaurants for a total of $69.3 million, showing a 3.2% increase over 2017. Lodging, the second largest commodity spend at $46.4 million increased 3% over the previous year.

Tourism supported 2,750 jobs in Calaveras County in 2018, showing a steady increase since 2010.  Calaveras County tourism generated $14.6 million in state and local taxes in 2018 and our local tourism industry earned $92.9 million, a 54.% increase over 2017.

    FORT WORTH, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) – A Fort Worth woman says she and her toddler were nearly run over, then sprayed with pepper spray, and she has no idea why. The assault happened in front of witnesses in a neighborhood off Crowley Road in early April. There was no lasting damage, but Diamond Alvarez says her 3-year-old son Leo has some lingering fear from the attack that happened in their neighborhood last month. They were walking past a home, when a woman who had recently moved out, quickly pulled into the driveway. “I didn’t say anything, I didn’t give a dirty look,” she said. “And I told him ‘wait, wait, ok we can go.’ And she immediately started just yelling.” Alvarez identified the woman yelling, as Maria Russell, who Fort Worth police confirmed has two arrest warrants out for assault charges.

    Alvarez said Russell threw a soda can at her, then got back in the car, and hit the gas.

    “She actually turned her vehicle and gassed it toward my son, and hit his 4-wheeler, and then I jumped in front of the vehicle, in between her and my son, and I put my hand out, and she gassed it four more times,” she said.
    That’s when Alvarez said Russell got out, and sprayed pepper spray directly at her and her son, before driving off.

    “This involves a child, an innocent child who wasn’t being rude or provoking her,” she said.
    The assault charges against the 56-year-old Russell include intentional bodily injury to a child. - (Black-on-white)

      The visitors have increased because they are looking for a home to buy and move out of the Valley and Bay Area. Not having pot farms make it a quiet, safer place for families and children. Unfortunately they will bring all the issues of where they are coming from here.

        Please explain why tourism revenue increased during the years cannabis cultivation was legal.

        Multiple industries can exist at once. It's done through a process called planning and zoning, which I can admit was not used very well in the initial urgency ordinance.

          Could you imagine the tourism with "Wine and Cannabis Tours"? We'd be swimming in money. But Mills, Toffanelli, and Clapp put an end to that. Look all around California, many counties are getting on the bandwagon. Calaveras?? Not so much. Mills and Toffanelli, that'll be your legacy. First a ban, then too little, too late. Clapp was just plain dumb, Mills and Toffanelli know better, but voted against progress, Mills especially because of his inflated ego. What a couple of douches. They set back Calaveras when it could have been on the cutting edge. Get them out of office in 2020.

            Yeah I'll be changing my voting habits, Republican and/or independent seems the sane way to go these days. The democrats have really disappointed me in their never ending fighting against our own country. Trump has this country running great and Democrats keep trying to stop it. Imagine if the Democrats actually tried being Americans instead of overthrowing our own government?

              The report is talking tourism, not moving to the county. Many can't afford a vacation involving air travel or want to deal with the horror that is airports now. There are many people of quality from the Bay area that spend their family vacations in the Route 4 corridor from Angels to Bear Valley and above in summer and winter.

    It could be worse, this could be Tuolumne County we live in. They have more tweakers, thieves, scum, and that's just the lowlifes that live there. Then you have all the democrats from Stockton, Modesto and other turd bowl communities that are attracted to that chithole because of all the casinos and box stores that attract losers who commit crimes for their daily alcohol and illegal drug use.
    Here in Calaveras County we just try to attract the alcoholics who drive drunk and spend money foolishly and frisbee golfers who get stoned and leave their garbage everywhere. And we throw lavish parades, and concerts revolving around getting hammered on alcohol and letting those who visit we look the other way when you drive drunk, but only Friday through Sunday. After that we try to arrest our residents not our visitors
    So COME ON UP AND DRINK FOLKS!!! YOU'RE SAFE HERE.
    (no wonder so many Murphys residents stay home on the weekends)

    Have a wonderful Friday to all of our working folks out there without your tax dollars we might have to put cultivation back on the ballot

      Those who live to flaunt the wealth moved to Tuolumne County to stand out. Unfortunately the felons are watching and follow. The casinos that deal drugs are another draw to the low life.

    Having large amounts of visitors driving drunk, drugged, tossing garbage, driving erratically is not anything that benefits the the residents. Larger amounts of money for a few tourist type businesses is nothing the majority of residents want for the county.

      Based on the amount of empties I pick up weekdays on our back country road, there's a fair amount of locals driving under the influence and contributing to roadside trash as well. And most of those empties "appear" between the hours of 3:30 and 6pm which might tell you more about just who's having a couple on their drive home.

    Sharing rent with another or a few others in an apartment or a house would probably help out. If you have some good and stable long term roommates-that is. That maybe a solution. Sometimes one has to rent with others. At least one would have a roof over his/her head-better than nothing or sleeping in a car. I understand that there is some type of proposal for a low income housing development on the northwest end of Angels especially for low income families. And may I add that these big corporations like the one that owns Copello Apartments gotta "lighten up" fix things, and make sure you have the right tenants there (not saying the present ones are all bad). Seems like the big corporations stockholders never even see some of their holdings and don't care. And may I also add that Copello is federally subsidized for section 8 clients; hence, marijuana smoking or plants aren't allowed on the property as per Federal laws.
