I wonder how easy this will be for Las Vegas to do, as most people go there just for the thrills of being on the strip.

Quote:
Western tourism boosters are doing something once unheard of in Las Vegas -- encouraging visitors to leave the Strip's posh gambling resorts and spend time in the great outdoors.
Their goal is to boost lagging visitation to national parks and other isolated adventure outposts by marketing to the tens of millions of people, particularly foreigners, who visit major destinations in Las Vegas; Anaheim, Calif.; and San Francisco.
Specifically, they want visitors to go beyond lush resorts and obvious tourist sightseeing venues such as Hoover Dam and the Grand Canyon to spend time -- and money -- at lesser-known spots in Nevada, California, Arizona, Utah, Wyoming, Oregon and Washington.
If they're successful it will mean private businesses and public parks in oft-forgotten towns such as Ely and Tropic, Utah, will share in revenue once confined to big casinos and theme parks
By Benjamin Spillman

I think it would take a lot of advertisment to get the people interested in breaking away from the strip to take the cave tours etc, and I really wonder how well this will work out.

I too must wonder how successful this will be. I would think it would mostly be people with different mind-sets going different ways. Those who like to gamble, and that go there for that purpose, will gamble. Those who don't, will go for the other attractions. I would think that this is what happens anyway.
