Long Beach Cultural Tourism Event; Astoria Lures Visitors

I believe cultural and heritage tourism is a major source of untapped revenue for heritage organizations constantly strapped for cash. So it's great to see the Washington Arts Commission participating in events promoting cultural tourism, such as this one on Tuesday, Feb. 21 sponsored by the Peninsula Arts Association in Long Beach, Wash.

In nearby Astoria, Ore., local history is already a major tourist draw, as the San Luis Obispo Tribune reports in this story, reprinted from the Seattle Times.
