Heritage Tourism

Each year, millions of travelers visit America’s historic places. The National Trust for Historic Preservation defines heritage tourism as “traveling to experience the places, artifacts, and activities that authentically represent the stories and people of the past and present.”  A high percentage of domestic and international travelers participate in cultural and/or heritage activities while traveling, and those that do stay longer, spend more, and travel more often.

Office of Preservation Initiatives

The Office of Preservation Initiatives (OPI) analyzes legislation, develops policy recommendations, prepares special studies and presentations, and represents the ACHP in interagency and partnership activities to promote the social, economic, and environmental benefits of preservation.
