Love! Tourism is def the first date for economic development!

Thx, Bill, for the shout-out for Bastrop and the Pecan Street Inn. Especially in a smaller town, capturing the property tax (in addition to HOT and sales taxes) is indeed, the culmination of economic development. And a plug for B&B's: since the owners live right in the neighborhood, there's no better way to get plugged into the local real estate market because they KNOW who just filed for divorce and whose momma just moved into the assisted living. LOL

LOL...too funny! I'd never considered that extra "perk!"

A real good example of this would be to look at Lakeland, Florida and see all the Detroit Tiger fans who over the years have attended Spring Training there and loved it so much, relocated. Thank for sharing, Bill
