International Travel Promotion Bill Passes the House

This week the House of Representatives passed the “Travel Promotion Act of 2008,” introduced by Barnstable County’s own William Delahunt, among others. Let’s hope the Senate will quickly follow suit and act on this bill, which will increase the number of international travelers coming to the USA, Cape Cod, and ...Chez Sven. To read the full press release, go here. The bill “establishes a public-private partnership to promote the United States as a premier international travel destination and communicate U.S. security and entry policies." Sven and I love receiving international guests. Sometimes Sven even gives them a special little tour of Wellfleet's beautiful beaches, or walks them to the pond. This past season approximately 15% of our guests have been from abroad.
