WASHINGTON, Oct. 2, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Following is the daily "Profile America" feature from the U.S. Census Bureau:
SUNDAY, OCTOBER 2: BED & BREAKFAST
Profile America — Sunday, October 2nd. Now that autumn is here, and fall colors are beginning to dot the landscape, many people who did not take a vacation during the summer are headed to out of the way places for a quiet getaway. Many will stay at historic country inns and bed & breakfasts in lovely rural locations or small towns in many states around the nation — that's why this is Country Inn and Bed and Breakfast Day. Across the U.S., there are some 3,400 bed & breakfasts offering a pleasant night's stay, perhaps in a four-poster bed, followed by a hearty, home cooked breakfast. Such places generate just over $1 billion a year in revenue for their hard-working owners. You can find these and more facts about America from the U.S. Census Bureau, online at <www.census.gov>.
