Grand Rivers Tourism Commission receives funding through accommodation and restaurant tax collected from businesses within the city limit of Grand Rivers, Kentucky, and therefore can not directly advertise for restaurants, cafes, hotels, motels, or resorts. However, if you are a family fun center that also offers food, that is perfectly acceptable. The primary business advertised just can not directly be accommodations or food service. Grand Rivers Tourism Commission reserves the right to deny advertising space to anyone. The commission also reserves the right to limit the number of advertisers on the website to keep a “clean” web appearance and so that the advertisers receive maximum exposure.
