This report is a summary of the study results contained in "Tourism in Maine: Analysis and Recommendations"

Maine proclaims itself as "Vacationland," and well it should. Since the last century when traveling longer distances became relatively easier, Maine has found itself increasingly popular as a destination for vacationers. Between 1967 and 1973 alone, the number of tourists spending at least one day in the State enjoying themselves on vacation, holiday or on a business trip has tripled. Today, Maine is within a day's journey of over sixty million people, an increasing percentage of whom visit Maine each year. Furthermore, Maine residents are, themselves, becoming greater travelers within the Stare. Official State employment statistics show that between 1960 and 1970, employment in eating and drinking places, lodging facilities and amusement and recreation establishments increased by over 50%--considerably more than the manufacturing sector in the State.
