Abstract : Travel and tourism is the Nation's largest industry, employer, and foreign-revenue earner, and U.S. beaches are the leading tourist destination. Clearly, beach tourism plays a key role in the U.S. economy. Although domestic tourism is sometimes thought to provide local or regional rather than national benefits, foreign tourism in the U.S. provides clear national benefits important to America's position in a competitive world economy.
