Description
Throughout the world, cities vie for tourist dollars in a competition so intense that they sometimes totally reconstruct their downtowns & waterfronts to attract tourists. Growing at an astonishing pace, urban tourism now plays a pivotal role in the economic development strategies of urban governments around the globe. In this book, distinguished urban experts from a variety of disciplines investigate tourism & its transforming impact on cities. As cities become places to play, the authors show, tourism recasts their spatial form. In some cities, separate spaces devoted to tourism & leisure are carved out. Other cities more readily absorb tourists into daily urban life, though even these cities undergo transformation of their character. The contributors examine such U. S. tourist meccas as Las Vegas, Orlando, Boston, & New York City's Times Square & continue on an international tour that looks at pilgrimage sites (Jerusalem), newly created resorts (Cancun), & places of artistic & historic interest (Prague). Other chapters take up important themes concerning the marketing of cities, how tourists perceive places, the construction of tourism infrastructure, & strategies for drawing tourists, including sports, riverboat gambling, & sex tourism in Southeast Asia.
