Forgive my memory, I believe SiteSell.com has a video or written testimonial about a women who developed her site around a tourist destination. It gave good examples about what to include in your site, how to organize, who you might make advertising or referral deals with locally to help monetize your site, etc.
Oh, great! I found the link, but it was just a little girl named Nori who started this high traffic site. Of course, she was the daughter of the SiteSell business that helps people build online businesses. I’m not an affiliate, so this link is clean. Just thought it might give you some ideas. Don’t look at the quality of the site. Look at how it’s set up, as well as all the ideas you can get for monetizing your own site. If I recall correctly, she even added Web 2.0 pages for her visitors to talk about their best Anguilla vacation memories, or something like that. I think that’s what jumped her ratings so high. Google loves Web 2.0
Hope this helps give you some ideas.
