National Travel and Tourism Week is celebrated each year during the first full week of May. The tradition was first celebrated in 1984 and was established in 1983 when President Ronald Reagan signed a Presidential Proclamation urging citizens to observe the week with “the appropriate ceremonies and activities.”
The U. S. Travel Association has developed a variety of resources for planning activities to celebrate the week. The resources can be accessed at the Web site below. This is a great opportunity for hospitality and tourism students to put into practice what they have been learning in class!
