The Watauga County District U Tourism Development Authority (WCTDA) is a local tourism development authority authorized by state (North Carolina) and local government (Watauga County) to promote travel, tourism, and corporate travel, sponsor tourist-related events and activities, and finance tourist related capital projects in District U. District U is defined as the unincorporated areas of Watauga County, North Carolina.

The revenue source of the WCTDA is derived from a 6% occupancy tax levied on short-term lodging rentals in the District U area of Watauga County. Boone TDA levies a 6% occupancy tax within the municipality of Boone. Therefore, the foremost objective of all actions of the TDAs is to strategically market and enhance lodging opportunities in our districts.
