"Walkability is a tourist magnet. Tourists coming to Vermont to walk and bicycle in the scenic, human-scale towns and compact, pedestrian-friendly town centers have proved to be an economic boon. In 1992, an estimated 32,500 visiting cyclists spent $13.1 million in Vermont - about twice the amount of money generated by Vermont's maple syrup producers in a good year." (Bicycle Touring in Vermont and Vermont's Scenic Byways Program, Bruce Burgess for the Vermont Agency of Transportation, 1995.)
