I think a great thing for the Bitcoin community would be to have an annual contest where the highest concentration of Bitcoin tourism businesses in a 1-2 mile radius is rewarded (somehow).

Something where someone can go to that town, have a nice weekend as a tourist spending only bitcoins.

So it would need at least one hotel that accepts bitcoins. Transportation (if necessary, at least from the airport). At least 4 sources of food (2 restaurants that could be visited for dinner). Some activities (tour/excursion/etc) that can be done during the day. At least one night time activity (bar, club, etc). And one place to buy souvenirs.

Maybe the reward could consist of publicity, money for advertisements, a year long designation as the "Bitcoin city", whichever...

First seastead company actually selling seasteads: Ocean Builders https://ocean.builders  Of course we accept bitcoin.

That's a great idea. However, to attract businesses to accept bitcoin, you need to provide a valid reason and a very good incentive. Giving away bitcoin is good but it is not feasible if one person is giving it away. Hence, I suggest you at start a crowdfunding campaign. Moreover, you need to choose a location where many facilities(leisure, hotels, transportation etc) within a small perimeter. Also, you should offer an incentive to people who donate to the crowdfunding campaign.  I really like this idea of yours and I'm willing to help you in my free time with this.

The Bitcoin community in the Netherlands is always pursuing ways to turn our cities 100% bitcoin. Check out Arnhem BitcoinStad, I also heard about some others trying to get it more accepted in Rotterdam. As most people know, Amsterdam is definitely a hotbed of Bitcoin activity.... with bitcoin meetups sometimes reaching close to 100 people in attendance. As well as headquarters to a few bitcoin companies like www.blocktrail.com .
