This website is dedicated to explorations inspired by the forthcoming book American Tourism: Constructing a National Tradition, edited by J. Mark Souther and Nicholas Dagen Bloom (Center for American Places at Columbia College Chicago; distributed by the University of Chicago Press).  The site features periodic posts that probe book themes, connect the book’s essays to current events, or point to pertinent rich media across the web.  The site also calls attention to book reviews, media appearances, book signings, and other book-related events.
