Picture a future where tourists will visit your local attractions prior to vacationing to determine if coming is worth their time. Through technology, they will place themselves in a resort, bed and breakfast or canoe/kayak on the water while sitting in the comfort of their home trying to decide if they want to explore your area in real life.
Potential move-ins of your community will stroll through your streets virtually to determine if your community is an acceptable place to live. Want to showcase your community to potential businesses looking to relocate? Want to provide an attraction that will excite younger generations providing them incentive to remain around after graduation? Well, all of this is currently possible and will be mainstream in the not-so-distant future. Welcome to the metaverse!
