Look at whom the organization is targeting, and analyze what aspects of the destination are geared toward the target market(s). Explain how destinations combine many of the suppliers in the tourism industry. Most sites will have visitation research data; however, you will have to use your information from Part I and the information in the document to draw conclusions. In other words, there are not explicit responses in any of these documents. You will demonstrate your abilities based on looking at the market and then, from that viewpoint, looking at what the destination state has to offer. Most of the sources will be located on websites. Depending on the location, describe the similarities and differences among the destination/community and urban tourist destinations.

The tour operators will provide what they think is important for a broader audience.
