This study was designed to address several related problems. (1) To determine the difference, if any, between national travel patterns and those of 1982 Easter Week visitors to Marriott’s Great America (Santa Clara, California) and Marine World Africa U.S.A (Redwood City, California). (2) To determine the differences, if any, between the 1982 Easter Week travel patterns of visitors to Marriott’s Great America and Marine World Africa U.S.A. (3) To determine the difference, if any, between the distances visitors traveled to Marriott’s Great America and Marine World Africa U.S.A. during the summer of 1981 and the 1982 Easter Week.
The problems dictated the necessity to address several subproblems. (1) To determine the distances visitors traveled; (2) mode of transportation used; (3) percentages of visitors traveling less than and more than 300 miles; (4) percentages of visitors utilizing various modes of transportation to Marriott’s Great America and Marine World Africa U.S.A. during the 1982 Easter Week; (5) to determine the difference between the distances visitors Marriott’s Great America traveled during the summer of 1981 and the 1982 Easter Week; and (6)to determine the difference between the distances visitors to Marine World Africa U.S.A. traveled during the summer of 1981 and the 1982 Easter Week.
