Michigan Sea Grant recently released Sustainable Coastal Tourism Development in Northeast Michigan, a guide designed to help tourism operators, resource managers, and community leaders work together to balance preservation of cultural and natural resources while expanding tourism and economic development in natural resource-rich areas.

The guide provides basic information about the coastal tourism industry, stakeholder profiles, recommendations for building a sustainable approach to tourism development, and best practice case studies of northeast Michigan partners.
