Get rid of the tourists and what will you have?

In 2008 16% of the Surf City population was below the poverty line. I'm going to say that this number hasn't improved over the last four years considering unemployment and state of the economy.

Now, you state you'd like to keep travelers away from the area? (Or is that just Northern travelers?) I wonder what the outcome of less tourism would do to Surf City.

Less people to purchase items at the stores and restaurants would more than likely cause more unemployment and businesses to close. It isn't like there's much else going for Surf City other than tourism. But, it's ok. As long as the homeowners have their homes who cares about people trying to make a living.
