Heritage Tourism Is Booming
According to a National Trust for Historic Preservation survey, more than half of U.S. states have established statewide heritage or cultural tourism programs, compared to virtually none a decade ago. Twenty of those programs are less than five years old. The National Trust's Heritage Tourism Program, which provides technical assistance and information to state and local heritage tourism programs, surveyed state-level tourism officials nationwide to gauge industry trends.
