When visitors arrive, ready to explore your destination, they expect plenty of things to see and do. They also expect that at least some things will be open for them to explore any day of the week. A realistic capacity assessment to look at the capacity of things to see and do, coupled with the capacity of accommodations, restaurants and other visitor service locations is the most important step a community can take to reveal the capacity to serve additional visitors that does or does not exist and what is lacking.
Because it is so important the capacity assessment be realistic and accurate, the methodology we use does not include chi squares, algebraic equations, or arcane language. Instead, a series of uncomplicated assessments of the actual capacity of accommodations, restaurants, and shopping availability reveals the capacity to serve visitors along with the economic impact these visitors can deliver.
