Olatunji Toyin, Tabitha, Ezenagu Ngozi


Tourism industry has enriched the economies of many nations across the globe. Its linkages to all other sectors made it highly labour intensive. Thus, if properly harnessed and managed will serve as an alternative or perhaps a readily source of income for the country. If subsequently promoted becomes the bedrock for a mono-petrolic economy like Nigeria. Despite the identification of tourism industry as an alternative to this diversification process yet not much is been done to attain the desired goal as a result of lack of information on Nigerian tourist sites. To remedy this situation necessitated the writing of this work which centres on identifying some of the cultural and natural attractions in Osun state for tourism promotion. The evaluation of these tourist sites in Osun State was carried out in some randomly selected tourist sites to forecast their feasibility as tourist destination.
