The National Park Service (NPS) manages the nation’s most iconic destinations that attract millions of visitors from across the nation and around the world. Trip-related spending by NPS visitors generates and supports a considerable amount of economic activity within park gateway communities. This book provides an economic effects analysis which measures how NPS visitor spending cycles through local economies, generating business sales and supporting jobs and income. (Imprint: Nova)
