HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ Gov. Dannel P. Malloy is visiting tourist attractions in southwestern Connecticut, seeking to draw attention to the state’s travel and tourism industry.

The industry is estimated to generate $11.5 billion annually in economic activity throughout the state and is responsible for about 110,000 jobs. Malloy’s office reports the sector experienced 3.9 percent job growth in 2012.

Malloy is scheduled to visit the Bruce Museum in Greenwich on Tuesday afternoon.

Later in the day, he is expected to visit the Stamford Museum & Nature Center and the newly reopened Connecticut Welcome Center, which is located along northbound Interstate 95 in Darien. The service plaza reopened on June 5 following a one-year construction project.
