Tourist Trap Ideas for City Folks

April 25, 2017, Author: The Posh Packer

Spring in Victoria is just around the corner. The season brings warm sunny days, gentle breezes, clear blue skies and, not to mention, tourists. If you’re living in a town or city with excellent tourist traps and venues, then having a business that caters to them can be an excellent source of additional income. The first thing you need to know is that tourists are not stupid. A one-time gimmick can lure a crowd but often falls flat before the season is over.

Here are a few business ideas that would keep these guests coming back year after year.


One of the first things visitors will look for is a place to stay. If you’re on a budget, why not design your own quirky, quaint bed and breakfast that can rival others in the area? There are plenty of motels in sale in Victoria, such as those on Resort Brokers Australia’s listings, which you can purchase, redesign and offer to tourists that come every season. Just make sure not to make it look like other run-of-the-mill places you see everywhere.


Cabs and Ubers are great, but they’re not exactly gimmicky. They offer convenience and affordability when people want to get around, but how about having your own line of transport. Ever heard of bike rentals in Greece? Why not take it a step further and offer motorcycle rentals? It can take your visitors to more places while providing an excellent view of the city and its streets.

Food and Beverages

Of course, food is probably the most important aspect of a tour. In fact, a  restaurant that serves a single popular dish can bring in flocks of tourists. If you can find a specialty that is tasty, affordable and unique, you can adopt and rebrand it in your business.

There are plenty of business opportunities for those who look hard enough. All you have to do is open your eyes to the possibilities, and you can enjoy the company of tourists all year round!
