Description: Both tourism researchers and urban planners use the term "tourist bubble" to describe a geographic area in a destination within which visitors operate. However, there is an interdisciplinary disparity in the conceptualization of the tourist bubble. This paper aims to more clearly describe the intersection of tourism and urban planning research, as well as to illuminate semantic similarities and differences between the two disciplines. A new methodology was developed for identifying and mapping the urban tourist bubble through structured interviews with individuals representing the tourism and urban planning professions. Understanding the urban tourist bubble is important because individuals representing both of these professions influence policy decisions that affect the urban experience of visitors as well as residents.
