Abstract
  • In analyzing tourism, we want to know how many visitors will be coming to visit and how much they will spend, so that we can evaluate: • Whether existing facilities can handle the visitors expected. • Whether it will be profitable to make preparations for increased tourists. It is important to know the cost of a visit to your community relative to the cost of a visit to another community. That cost includes expenditures for food, lodging, travel, and entertainment. Many of these amounts, how­ever, are outside of a community's control (such as the cost of travel to your area). Communities may be able to cooperate to influence the effects of transportation costs on tourists. The Durango/Silverton railroad, for example, is a multi-community effort that enhances regional tourism. Other expenses are those not usually considered in terms of dollars and cents. The most important cost of driving may not be the gasoline or depreciation of the car, but the hours spent.
