    Obama, in Florida, unveils plans to boost tourism
    Associated Press By JULIE PACE

    LAKE BUENA VISTA, Florida (AP)  President Barack Obama planted his political flag in Florida on Thursday ahead of the state's Jan. 31 Republican presidential primary, promising a fresh boost to the economy by making it easier for foreign tourists to travel to the U.S.

    well if president Obama wants to boost the economy by promoting touriism,why don't we hear from our hubbers what tourists from other countries should do and see in their own state.
    Since I'm living in Kentucky,I'll recommend the Mammoth Caves National Park.
    who's next?

      If Obama truly wants to boost tourism, why doesn't he start in his birth state of Hawaii?  Tourism here has been depressed for years.  Oh, that's right - Hawaii doesn't really count in the election since the votes are tabulated long before the polls close here, and we certainly don't have a Republican Primary.

      But, in answer to your question, I would recommend Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, the North Shore of Oahu, Hanauma Bay, Waikiki Beach, and the observatories on Mauna Kea.

    Honestly? I think Obama is a bit clueless on that one. America is so well known that the tourist market is running at 100% already. If people aren't coming here, it's a) either they're not interested b) the strength of the dollar against other countries makes the US unreachable.

    To me, this is a diversionary tactic.

    It's nothing more than a political move. That's what politicians do in campaign years.
    Florida is in early voting, the GOP is here, so of course Obama is going to make a move.

    Tourism is our lifeblood in the state of Florida.

      New Jersey has the shore area, and the NW part of the state shares the border with the Delaware Water Gap, filled with beautiful hiking trails and camping areas. We have botanical gardens at Skylands Manor, and Ringwood Manor is a beautiful mansion from the Revolutionary War days. Much of South Jersey is farmland. It's not all strip malls as people have been led to believe. We have lots of weird and haunted areas, made famous by Mark and Mark in their quarterly magazine, Weird New Jersey.

    These are wonderful suggestions for foreign tourists as well as Americans. Many  citizens do not know what wonderful places each state has. The tourism boards always show the same places,but locals know better unknown spot for sure.
