"Visit Dothan" accounted for more than 1 million hotel guests in a 2019 review.

This is the 2nd year in a row that has happened.

The guests helped contribute to more than $300 million spent in Dothan in 2018.

2019 is projected to be an even higher total.

Part of this has to do with a re-vamped "Visit Dothan" website which has promoted more events around the city.

"We saw a tremendous [growth] in website traffic really based on those three campaigns and those will continue in the spring to let people know what is going on in Dothan, that's our job," says Visit Dothan President and CEO, Aaron McCreight.

Visit Dothan's next big event will be the "2020 Visit Dothan Invitational on February 6th through the 9th.

The softball tournament will include more than 20 junior college teams at James Oates Park.
