Tourism experts view summer season with cautious optimism

Listen to this story
Business owners and tourism officials in the Adirondack Park say they're cautiously optimistic about the summer tourism season, which unofficially kicked off this weekend. They're optimistic because the country is slowly pulling out of an economic recession, the Canadian dollar remains close to par, and the weather over the last few weeks has been sunny and warm - all of which are factors that, if they continue, could bring more tourists to the Adirondacks. But, as Chris Knight reports, those in the Park's tourism industry are cautious because the economy remains unstable and the weather in the Adirondacks, which can play a big role in people's travel plans, is unpredictable.
