TOURISM AS ECONOMIC SELF-DEVELOPMENT IN RURAL NEBRASKA: A CASE STUDY
Abstract:Rural communities in the US have chosen to develop tourism, but there is very little understanding of the process of development. The primary aim of this study was to determine the developmental process of tourism in a rural community. The secondary purpose was to determine whether or not that process was an example of self-development. Results of this case study of a rural community illustrate successful self-developed tourism in a small isolated rural community.
