Tourism

The Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe proposes much more than a gaming enterprise. The Tribe's destination resort casino will have a strong tourism component including a luxury hotel, fine and family dining, venues for entertainment, and other attractions making a unique variety of jobs available. The new audience drawn to the destination will present an opportunity for Taunton to develop and showcase its rich history and natural resources and become an historic hub of the region and a cultural gateway to the rest of southeastern Massachusetts, Cape Cod and the Islands.


Massachusetts currently sees 20 million tourist visits annually. The Tribe will partner with regional tourism organizations and chambers of commerce to promote tourism and increase the visitors to Taunton and Southeastern Massachusetts.
