The Rock Hill York County Convention and Visitors Bureau hosted the 2013 Tourism Summit Thursday at the Baxter Hood Center in Rock Hill

South Carolina Parks, Recreation and Tourism communications director Marion Edmonds told the crowd of a couple of hundred that York County has hidden gems — like the Charlotte Douglas International Airport.

Edmonds emphasizes that York County is near the top in terms of the amount of money generated by tourists and visitors and the number of people who work in those areas.

He says the Welcome Center just inside the South Carolina border is a tremendous asset in York County that needs to be maximized.
