Just before noon on Tuesday January 4th, the Kingman Visitor Center welcomed Kirstin Kodrack, its 2.5 millionth visitor since opening on October 25, 1997. Kirstin resides in Waldport, Oregon and is a retired Master Sergeant form the U.S. Army. She and her traveling companion, Steven Gaskins, were traveling in a Mercedes Sprinter van.

Vice Mayor Ken Watkins was present to congratulate Kirstin and presented her with a gift basket full of gift cards and souvenirs from local Kingman businesses.

Last year (2021) was a year of rebound for Kingman’s tourism sector. Hotel revenues increased 32.5% year-over-year through November 2021 (source 2021 STR, LLC / STR Global, Ltd.). Visitation to the Kingman Visitor Center reflects a nearly identical 32.6% increase, 96% of which arrived from within the United States and only 4% from outside the country. The Kingman Office of Tourism anticipates travel to continue increasing in 2022 and plans to reopen Sundays in February, resuming its pre-pandemic 7 days-a-week operation.
