Abstract
  • Cascade Locks, Oregon, has chosen tourism as a means of revitalizing its economy with its 1) accessibility to Interstate 80N, 2) attractive location in the Columbia River Gorge, and 3) availability as a source of needed services (food and fuel). The Port of Cascade Locks has financed the Marine Park, Port information complex, urban renewal, and the proposed aerial tramway and sternwheeler-riverboat for the estimated 3.7 million Gorge visitors. Relatively few tourist attractions in the Gorge have been heavily patronized, other than Bonneville Dam and Multnomah Falls. Two conducted surveys indicated that tourists 1) favored the proposed sternwheeler, and 2) would patronize Cascade Locks if attractions were available. The present energy crisis will reduce out-of-state visitation; thus, Cascade Locks should depend on patronage from residents in the Portland metropolitan area. Tourism should prove beneficial to the town's prosperity.
