Promoting community resilience is a major question for researchers and policymakers. Although residents’ perceptions of tourism impacts are positively correlated with community resilience, no study to date has quantitatively investigated the relationship between intertemporal tourism clusters and community resilience. Moreover, there is little research assessing the spatial variability of community resilience metrics in relation to tourism clusters. Hence, this study addressed these gaps by empirically examining the spatially varying relationships between intertemporal specialization or instability of tourism clusters and community resilience. Spatial and aspatial regression models were employed via a case study of sixty-seven counties in Florida. Findings showed that accommodation and food service specialization led to higher levels of community resilience, whereas arts, entertainment, and recreation instability led to lower levels of community resilience. Furthermore, these effects of tourism clusters on community resilience were spatially heterogeneous. Such findings are essential for policymakers to establish the formulation of community-based resilience planning and policy with tourism clusters.
