Why States are Prioritizing Recreation as the New Economy

Mountain Flyer: The Mountain Bike Journal

Outdoor recreation is increasingly viewed as a viable industry for jobs and economic growth. According to a Bureau of Economic Analysis study released in September 2019, the U.S. outdoor recreation economy accounted for 2.2 percent ($427.2 billion) of current-dollar gross domestic product in 2017. Inflation-adjusted GDP for the outdoor recreation economy grew by 3.9 percent in that year, faster than the 2.4 percent growth of the overall U.S. economy. Many citizens, business owners and state leaders are creating working groups, nonprofits and state departments to champion this emerging industry, including 14 states with established, formal offices and two with governor-charged task forces. Over the following pages, representatives from three states discuss why and how they’re supporting this fast-growing economy.
