OK, not really. They are probably all very nice people.
Point is, how hard do they really have to work to get your business? When you think of doing something touristy, most folks naturally wander through a list of locations like Las Vegas, Hawaii, Florida, Paris, yada, yada, yada. Do they really need a heavily staffed tourism and convention bureau?
And then there's Nome, Alaska. The Nome Visitor's Center. These folks have to work HARD for your money.
Thought I'd help out with some catchy new slogans:
"There's No Place Like Nome."
"Beat the rush. Mush."
"You'll come for the snow, but you'll stay for the ice."
OR..., "If it's your last night on earth, don't you want it to last all year?"
Funny thing is, if you click on the link? One of these is real.
