UNIT 6 topic is about Cultural Tourism. So...
What, Exactly, is Cultural Tourism?
Cultural Tourism is the travel industry's term describing travel and visitation activities directed at an area's arts, heritage, recreational and natural resources. It's not a new phenomenon (tourists have come to Massachusetts for decades to experience these things), but it is a new way of connecting with visitors eager for a cultural excursion. These multi-cultural and multi-generation visitors make destination choices related directly to a region's performance, artistic, architecture and historical offerings. In Massachusetts, we have several of the world's best cultural destinations.
Cultural Tourism is the fastest growing sector of the travel industry.
Cultural Tourists spend $62 more per day and $200 more per trip than other travelers.
Cultural Tourists have higher levels of income.
Cultural Tourists include multiple destinations during a visit and stay one half-day longer at each destination
