Tourism is growing in the Unites States and has been since World War II with the increased availability of inexpensive air travel and more leisure time for the American population. Communities labeled as quaint, old fashioned, or culturally and historically significant are ripe for tourism development. Areas all over the U.S. are experiencing increasing tourism, and towns such as Santa Fe and Taos (New Mexico), Jackson (Wyoming), Camden (Maine), Butte (Montana), and Telluride (Colorado) all have had increasing amounts of development to attract tourists. The resulting impacts on these communities and their residents have been both positive and negative.
