Tourism is the front door to non-tourism economic development
Visitor spending injects money into the local economy, ensuring communities prosper. When businesses have revenue, they can support service clubs, youth activities, hospital and church fundraisers and the many causes business owners are asked to support. The number one activity of visitors throughout the world is shopping! It may not be the “travel trigger” that brings them here, but once here they’ll spend money on dining and entertainment and fill up the gas tank before leaving. While local residents’ shopping habits enable retailers to break even, tourism provides the profit margin (Source: Destination Development Association).
Often a visit turns into a cottage or home purchase (think taxpayer!) or even a new business start-up.
