Tourism the Environment and Your Community

The Importance to a community of environmental issues and practices like energy efficiency and water conservation cannot be underestimated, especially if tourism is a contributor to the local economy.

Highly Educated Travelers family and group vacationers select destinations primarily on-the-basis of cultural, gastronomic, wellness and other preferences; increasingly, they expect that the places they visit reflect their values on key issues like recycling practices, air and water quality, as well as the availability and quality of public transit. The Logistics of Travel are defined as:
Anchoring stays in strategic locations along planned trip routes conveniently located to local points of interest and minimizing the number of accommodation changes; hence, fewer times packing and unpacking, thus lowering accommodations and transport costs in
Hub and Spoke Locations smaller towns and rural communities with regional rail, bus, van, car and air connections strategically located within 200 or less miles of larger metropolitan areas
Sightseeing, meals and other planned events in a hub and spoke fashion, saving time and money, but also an opportunity to slow down and enjoy the places and the people you are visiting

Mode of Transport selections are a function of number of persons, trip length as well as the time of year you are traveling. Rationalizing travel movements, ascertaining transport mode(s) availability and costs are the key to a successful trip planning.

Business Travelers require efficient plans to meet trip objectives. This may entail visiting several locations in a compressed period-of-time to seek investment and sales opportunities. They look to Main Streets shopping and entertainment venues, Historic Districts and other community neighborhoods that have or plan to put in place energy savings measures as well as other environmental safeguards that help reduce the cost of doing business in that local area. A successful community requires:
Developing Projects built around existing facilities that need upgrading and/or expansion to manage tourism flows and local production capabilities to enhance the community’s offerings.
