Lutsen & Tofte Visitor Survey: Full Report.

Bipes, Theresa.

In 2009 the Lutsen-Tofte Tourism Association (LTTA) contracted with the University of Minnesota Center for Urban and Regional Affairs (CURA) to conduct a survey of visitors to the Lutsen-Tofte area. The goals of the survey were to collect demographic, activity participation, lodging, information source, use pattern, and preference data to address the following questions: What location makes the most sense for serving tourists in the Lutsen-Tofte area? What are current visitor center use patterns? Who is not being served by the current visitor center? What do visitors expect in a visitor center? What should the visitor center provide that it is not able to provide at its current location? Of particular interest to this study were the traveling parties of families, outdoor recreationists, and couples. This report presents the study methods, followed by a discussion and appendices.
