April 17, 2014 6:56 PM

DENVER (CBS4) – Colorado has seen a boom in revenues since the legalization of retail marijuana sales, but Denver’s tourism industry is especially feeling the impact this Easter weekend.

This year’s Easter holiday falls on April 20 — or 4/20 — which is also a day known across the country as an unofficial holiday for the celebration of marijuana.

Data from Hotels.com shows that Denver hotel searches for the weekend of April 18-20 have increased by 73% compared to the same timeframe in 2013. Denver is already on the list of the Top 20 U.S. destinations, but many believe the legalization of marijuana is drawing even more interest to the city.
