At $1100 per person for a 3 day weekend fishing trip, is it any surprise why locals donât make up more of the local tourism business? Other tourist-dependent economies have adopted permanent âlocalâs ratesâ to tap into additional revenue sources that add some revenue stability. Hawaii is a prime example of this.âKamaâainaâ discounts are not officially administered by any organization or the state, but rather seems to have grown out of the lessons of previous hard times in tourism. Many Hawaiian Golf courses, restaurants, hotels, tourist attractions and even airlines have these specials, and they seem to work. Lower prices for residents may just be enough to entice people to plan mini-vacations. It is much easier to attract a family from Anchorage to Kenai than from Tennessee, and if they have a good time and arenât going broke having it, they might come back 2 or 3 times a year.
