The Bureau of Tourism is the executive department of the SW City government responsible for the regulation of the city tourism industry and the promotion of the city as a tourist destination.

The staffed group, which is on duty 24/7, is responsible for directing new visitors as well as giving out information about important sites around the city. Tourism workers are mostly found around Town Square Park and at a few historical sites. The group was founded after 48 local businesses petitioned for it, complaining that they were losing too much business due to lost potential customers.
