Tourists tend to have disposable income that they can spend in the city they are visiting. They also have more leisure time which they use on numerous, shorter vacations throughout the year. Most tourists are well educated with sophisticated tastes, demanding better services and products. Many tourists also travel with their families, and thus the need for more family-oriented entertainment. People are traveling all over the world to see the sights and experience what other countries have to offer. Sustainable tourism and ecotourism have become popular with tourists who are attempting to reduce their own carbon footprint and leave the world a better place for future generations.

However, the most important reason for tourism in Kingston is the "multiplier effect;" that is, how many times, money spent by a tourist, circulates through the economy of Kingston.
