City creates Office of Travel and Tourism, Giuffrida named new director

City officials announced the new Revere Office of Travel and Tourism, Next Stop Revere: By Land, By Sea, or T last Thursday afternoon along the Markey Bridge at Revere Beach. Subsequently, Mayor Brian Arrigo announced Charlie Giuffrida, currently the Assistant Director of the Revere Parks and Recreation Department, as the new director of the department.

“Tourism is Massachusetts’ third largest industry and the next double digit growth sector for Revere’s economy, which is why it’s a central investment priority in the American Rescue Plan Act,” said Giuffrida. “At its core, the Tourism office is the marketing arm of the city; dedicated to showcasing Revere as a destination for local, regional, and international tourists. I grew up in this area and even I’m astounded by how much there is here. There’s so much to do I think I’ll have a great challenge and a great opportunity here to really package the city in a way that hasn’t been done before.”

During last Thursday’s press conference at the Markey Bridge, Mayor Brian Arrigo said the city’s new Travel and Tourism Office will offer year-round seasonal programming.
Incoming tourism director Charles Giuffrida said the city has a rich, compelling Revolutionary War history.
State Rep. Jeff Turco said it’s nice to see the beach that he grew up on grow into a tourist destination.
