(Overall, CHS gets about 5 million visitors a year). Through the first half of 2015, all indicators are positive (hotel occupancies up 2% and room demand up 3%, average room rates up 6% and REVPAR up 8%) – and “tourism is alive and well in South Carolina”, all according to an article from the Associated Press’ Bruce Smith via The Post and Courier.
