Destination Community

In this book, David Twiggs discusses tourism in destination communities, destination branding for small cities and community development through tourism. This book intends to layout the components of creating an Integrated Tourism System for Destination Communities. These concepts can be used to develop destination communities in urban as well as rural settings for truly sustainable communities.

This book begins with where the concept of “destination community” comes from. We see the shifts in cultural values in the American society since the 1950’s, which resulted from the economic prosperity and technology advancement. The culture shift brings forward the changes in people’s lifestyle, when people became more and more distant from the agrarian based living. Later, the shift in community models and tourism experience is discussed. As the formula community, as David calls it, rises and declines, the concept of Destination Community, as a more sustainable tourism based community, is introduced.
