DescriptionIn a 1993 article in Annals, Leu, Crompton, and Fesenmaier (LCF) presented a model of multi-destination pleasure trips. In the article, they question the practice of modeling pleasure trips as single destination trips, and put forward conceptual arguments suggesting that most trips "are not simple origin-destination trips: (1993:291) but instead involve visiting multiple destinations. LCF put forth their conceptual model as a tool for classifying trips for descriptive, modeling, and marketing purposes, but offered no empirical data to illustrate the model's use and applicability. The purpose of this research note is take that next step in model development. It applies the LCF concepualization of trip patterns to data collected via trip diaries distributed to Branson (Missouri, USA) visitors.
