Los Alamos Tourism Strategic Plan
Los Alamos, New Mexico
Los Alamos, New Mexico is rich with history, natural beauty and scientific discovery and is the gateway to three National Parks. While tourists have always visited Los Alamos, the County engaged Design Workshop to create the Los Alamos Tourism Strategic Plan that helps unify ongoing tourism efforts and position the County to optimize tourism economic development for the benefit of the Los Alamos and White Rock communities. It provides direction for decisions relating to tourism, community investment, cultural opportunities and physical development. The County and its partners will use the detailed action plan to direct funding and resources. Implementing the recommendations of this plan, along with other County and community initiatives, will result in an improved visitor experience and enriched quality of life for the local community. The plan was unanimously approved in 2018 and the county is well underway implementing action items that will ultimately help integrate the strategic plan and help sustain a positive quality of life for the community.
