Dave Spreen points out a fundamental problem that we would have with bringing in cruise ships:
Beyond that, having well-fed and already-lodged old people pop in for a few hours doesn't exactly sound like a profitable scenario for Old Town.
Scarlet B's point is worth considering. The millions spent to market Humboldt to near-distant tourists should be matched with efforts to improve the experiences that people have once they are here. The best way to attract people is to be attractive.
Thank you Reynard. I, for one, would like to know more about this past effort, and perhaps his question "what has changed since then that will result in a different outcome this time?" should have been asked before we began spending money.
Letting cruise passengers off "west of the balloon track" may be "ideal for cruise ships," but I would suggest that cruise enthusiasts walk from there to Old Town to see what the experience might be like.
God, what a horrible person.
Such great news for Eureka!
Having been a sidewalk pedestrian who was nailed by an idiot riding at a high rate of speed on a bicycle, I appreciate this comment.
