Tucson’s designation as a UNESCO Creative City of Gastronomy last year seems to be paying the dividends the city had hoped for.
Tucson is the only city in the United States with the distinction. Eight other cities have the designation worldwide.
While the estimates on how much the designation has helped the tourism economy and the economy in general are not yet known, early indications are it could be substantial.
