In March 2018, the Harnett County Tourism Authority was approved by the Harnett County Board of Commissioners after the North Carolina General Assembly passed Session Law 2017-202, which created Harnett County District H as a taxing district and allowed for the levy of a room occupancy tax within the district. Harnett County District H consists of all of Harnett County outside of the Averasboro Township (which is part of the Dunn Area Tourism Authority).
The Harnett County Tourism Authority is charged with using the revenue generated from the District H occupancy tax to promote travel and tourism, and for tourism-related expenditures in the district. The Authority will support the further promotion of tourism in Harnett County alongside the Dunn Area Tourism Authority. The Board Members will also work closely with the County’s Economic Development team.
The Authority is working on several initiatives at this times, with their first task being the creation of a logo and branding efforts. With their branding efforts, the Authority plans to establish a strong social media presence to promote Harnett County tourism, create awareness of county attractions and venues, and promote county-wide events.

Tourism Authority Announces Visit Harnett Brand and Logo
Harnett County, NC - The Harnett County Tourism Authority is excited to present the new Visit Harnett brand and logo to further promote travel and tourism in Harnett County!
The Authority has been working on several initiatives, with their first being the creation of a logo and brand. The logo, an abstract “H”, denotes water, air, and land. The Cape Fear River, lush greenery, and Harnett County’s natural environment were all sources of inspiration.
County Economic Developer Angie Stewart worked with the Authority on the project. “The logo is bright, fresh and active. The members of the Harnett County Tourism Authority have embraced the opportunity to come together to promote the County’s diverse attractions and venues.”
With the release of the brand and logo, the Authority has established a Visit Harnett social media presence on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. The public is invited to follow and share information via social media.
In the coming months, the Authority will launch a Visit Harnett website to create awareness of county attractions and venues, and promote county-wide events, alongside the Dunn Area Tourism Authority.
