  • Abstract:
    The purpose of this study was to: 1) examine the effect of Arizona Highways Magazine (AHM) on tourism, 2) determine trip

    characteristics of AHM subscribers traveling in Arizona, and 3) calculate a benefit/cost ratio for AHM based on the

    magazine’s cost and revenues as well as the value-added economic impact. Findings suggest that:

    -AHM subscribers are demographically similar to other people with an interest in Arizona as a travel destination with

    the exception of age and related variables: AHM subscribers are older.

    -A very high percentage of AHM subscribers have taken trips in Arizona over the past five years, with many visiting

    multiple times. Most out-of-state subscribers stay for one to two weeks when they visit, most often traveling with a

    spouse or partner.

    -Subscribers use AHM fairly extensively as a source of travel information.

    -About 29 percent of out-of-state subscribers who visited in the past five years indicated that AHM influenced them to

    visit Arizona on their most recent trip.

    -In addition to its influence on visitors’ decision to select Arizona as a destination, the magazine especially influenced

    decisions related to specific destinations or attractions and choices regarding travel routes.

    -Subscribers have spent an average of over $195.2 million on travel annually over the past five years, and $41.5

    million of those expenditures can be directly attributed to AHM and its influence on the travel behavior of out-of-state

    subscribers. This amounts to a benefit/cost ratio 7.8 to 1 at the very least.
