Travel’s ability to bounce back after periods of economic hardship, and inject much-needed revenue directly into local and state economy, is why the theme of this year’s National Travel and Tourism Week is the Power of Travel.

National Travel and Tourism Week, May 2-8, the 38th annual celebration of the U.S. travel industry’s contributions, is an opportunity to remind visitors and residents of the incredible value the travel industry holds not just for our local economy and workforce, but to our community’s identity and culture, and to remind policymakers of travel’s ability to help power recovery efforts.

Rachel Wright is the communications and social media manager at Destination Gettysburg.
