A tourist destination is typically a place or location that heavily relies on the financial benefits of tourism as a major part of its economy. A tourist destination could be large, such as a major city. It could also be very small, such as a tiny coastal town or resort.
Many cities and resorts are built around certain attractions such as beaches, history, movies, golf courses and restaurants. While these are all great attractions to see, they need people to walk, take buses, train, and other forms of transportation to get there. These tourism destinations then rely on visitors to bring in business. The more people that come to a city or resort, the more money it makes.
One way that a tourist destination gets business is through providing something of value that is not found anywhere else. The main thing that pulls visitors to a destination is usually tourism, but there may be some other things in the area that provide a good reason to visit. For example, a resort could have a beautiful beach and offer fishing and surfing activities. Providing something of value that is not found anywhere else will help the area to draw people.
