FREMONT – For the initially few of months of 2020, it appeared to Peggy Courtney like it was going to be a solid yr for tourism in Sandusky County.

There ended up 49 group tour buses booked to appear to the county, with a whole slate of occasions to attract travelers and fill the county’s accommodations and restaurants.

Then the COVID-19 pandemic hit and the disruptions and cancellations kept coming, with prime nearby events like the county’s Bicentennial Bash and the Sandusky River’s once-a-year walleye and white bass operates both cancelled or seeing considerably lessened variety of site visitors.
