Celebrating National Travel and Tourism Week

By: Jessica Roberts

National Travel and Tourism Week is an annual tradition for the U.S. travel community. This is a time when travel and tourism professionals across the country unite to celebrate the value travel holds for our economy, businesses and personal well-being.

National Travel and Tourism Week in 2019

In 2019, the celebration takes place May 5 – 11, and marks the 36th anniversary of the 1983 congressional resolution that established NTTW.

Polk County Hospitality Industry Employees work tirelessly to ensure every visitor has a memorable and action-packed vacation. Industry employees make our guests feel welcome as they explore everything Central Florida has to offer.
