The article is devoted to the urgent problem of finding ways to stimulate the development of regional socio-economic systems, the sphere of domestic tourism is one of such systems. The article uses the analysis of statistical data and the results of a sociological survey and determines that currently the sphere of domestic tourism in the Russian Federation and its regions is underdeveloped. On the example of the Northwestern Federal District, which has a high recreational potential for organizing domestic tours, the conclusion is made about the weak demand of citizens of the Russian Federation for the services of the tourism sector. The study reveals that the existing system of management of the development of domestic tourism does not stimulate the consumption of tourist products of the region by the population, and therefore does not contribute to its socio-economic development. Scientific novelty of the article consists in the fact that it identifies and systematizes problems of development of domestic tourism in the region, and develops tools to solve these problems. The information base of the article includes the works of domestic and foreign economists in the field of methodological and practical issues of management of the development of domestic tourism, as well as statistical data of state statistics, expert and sociological surveys. The research is based on general scientific methods of comparison, generalization, analysis, synthesis. The materials of the article can be used in scientific and educational activities. They are of practical interest to the authorities and management bodies that implement economic policy in order to enhance internal factors in solving the problems of socio-economic development of the territory. In the future, it is planned to continue working on the assessment of the impact of domestic tourism on the economy of the region, and studying the ways to promote it
