Historic Preservation leading to Heritage Tourism can be an economic strategy that greatly benefits a community...
Over the past 20 years many academic studies have demonstrated that Heritage Tourism can generate more revenue than any other type of tourism. Culture and Heritage tourists often stay longer and spend a lot more money in general than other tourists do. In fact, one study showed that a culture and heritage tourist spent as much as 38% higher per day and they stayed 22% longer overall compared to other kinds of travelers. Culture and heritage tourists also tend to put more money back into the local economy, spending more than other kinds of tourists.
Generally, the benefits of heritage tourism can be categorized into three groups: Economic, Social, and Environmental.
1.Economic Benefits of Cultural and Heritage Tourism: *Injects new money into the economy, boosting businesses and tax revenues *Creates new jobs, businesses, events, and attractions, thus helping diversify the local economy *Supports small businesses and enables them to expand;
2.Social Benefits of Cultural and Heritage Tourism *Promotes positive behavior *Helps improve the community’s image and pride *Promotes community beautification;
3.Environmental Benefits of Cultural and Heritage Tourism *Helps encourage a culture of preservation *Boost awareness of the tourist site, attraction, or area’s significance *Helps encourage local residents and visitors to be mindful of their impact on the natural and built environment...Properly handled, it can provide a reason to invest in things like sewage and water resources in areas.
