Weaving Tourism into Communities: Four Stories Over Time
A new video from the Tourism Center provides a unique longitudinal study of four communities over two decades. University researchers return to four communities first profiled in 1991. In their own words, community leaders describe the changes, benefits, and challenges their communities have experienced from tourism development.
The case studies of these four communities--Dahlonega, Georgia; Sandpoint, Idaho; San Luis, Colorado; and the Villages of Van Buren, Iowa—stress core values needed for tourism development.
