Title

Social Impacts of Tourism in Central Florida

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate Central Florida residents' perception of the social consequences and impacts of tourism. A telephone survey of 203 Central Florida households revealed that residents not only supported the current magnitude of the tourism industry, but also favored its expansion. Despite this overall positive feeling, Central Floridians identified some specific positive and negative impacts that, in their opinion, tourism had on their community. In addition, the study revealed a relationship between overall level of support for Central Florida Tourism and residents' perceptions of the consequences of tourism.
