Tourists' Climate Perceptions: A Survey of Preferences and Sensitivities in North Carolina's Outer Banks


Abstract:
Tourism is a major economic driver for North Carolina. Despite its fundamental influence on tourism, there is limited understanding of the relationship of climate and weather patterns with day-to-day business operations or long-term economic and environmental sustainability. This article presents a climate-tourism index to measure and evaluate climate as a resource for tourism businesses in North Carolina.
