As a Recreation & Tourism Management major in college, you will learn the very real business behind "Leisure" or "Recreation". In the United States alone, there are literally thousands of Local, State, National and "Theme" parks and venues. All must be well maintained, made profitable, and accessible to all. Kayaking, Whitewater Rafting, Mountain Biking, Zip Lining, Flag Football, Softball, Tennis and even Disc Golf are all done in organised settings.
