(Huntingdon) -- Governor Corbett is promoting the commonwealth's tourism industry by dipping his kayak into a midstate river.
The governor recently took a 13-mile paddle on the Juniata River in Huntingdon County.
He says tourism supports jobs in restaurants, hotels and other businesses across the state.
"It's a major industry in Pennsylvania," Corbett explains. "Here in Huntingdon County, we have Raystown Lake a couple miles from here. Obviously, it's a tourist destination, but there's more to do than just Raystown Lake and that's why we got down on the river."
Corbett has kayaked on the Delaware, the Susquehanna, the Allegheny, the Conemaugh.
His most recent kayak trip is part of a three-day tourism promotion trip in the center of the state.
He also stopped by the Huntingdon County Fair.
