Well removed from the hip city districts that sell it by name only, authenticity is given out by the handful in rural towns.

.

For Clark Countys small cities, attracting visitors means cranking up the charm and letting the towns do the talking. The benefits of tourism will follow.

.

(Our) collaborative efforts tend to be primarily event-based, to draw visitors on a regular basis to some of the great spaces and places in Ridgefield, said Ridgefield City Manager Steve Stuart.

.

Clark County isnt a hard sell for tourists  parks, wineries, mountains, history, rivers, and wildlife abound.

.

Getting people into Vancouver isnt too tough, either, with restaurants, the fort, museums and more beckoning the passer-by to stay a while.

.

But in rural towns, its art walks, Fourth of July celebrations, hometown holidays and heritage days  by a dozen different names, these are the things that get north- and east-county cities on the map.

.

From my experience, were talking about events here in Camas and Washougal (for tourism), said Brent Erickson, executive director of the Camas-Washougal Chamber of Commerce. Theres a lot of things happening. People are coming in.

.

As yearly events like Camas Days and Battle Grounds Harvest Days turn into tradition, business organizations and city councils are the first to line up in their support.

.

In 2014 we hired an events coordinator to help lead implementation of the councils initiative to create more opportunities to bring people to Ridgefield, Stuart said.

.

The nonprofit Center for Rural Affairs says tourism can be a big part of developing small towns without changing their character.

.

Rural communities can be successful for being exactly who they are, writes Joanne Steele, a rural marketing professional. Rural tourism is about community and economic development.
