Glennallen Expects At Least 2,100 Visitors In June 

The Greater Copper Valley Chamber of Commerce Visitor Center is seeing a significant increase in visitors coming into the building this year. Tok also is seeing more visitors at the Tok Center: around 100 a day. 

Said Dale Oja of the Chamber,"We're way above the last two years and a little less than 2019. We keep a daily tally."

Shirley Cain, who works at the Chamber gave the following comparisons for the mid-May to mid-June counts for the past four years:




JUNE COMPARISONS:
The Visitor Information Center is currently averaging 70 visitors a day this June. The highest day brought in 95 people a few days ago

Last year, 1,600 people came into the VIC in Glennallen in the month of June, Dale Oja said. That's an average of around 52 people a day. 

Peak season for visitors is July. 

The Country Journal took photographs at the Hub Junction on Monday, and activity there is much higher than a week ago. 
Historically, most roadside tourism coming in from Outside doesn't really get started along the road system until around June 15th.
