History of National Tourism Day

Travel was written as the death of prejudice, bigotry and narrow-mindedness, and many of us desperately need it in these accounts of the earth during our lifetimes by Mark Twain. Tourism gives people new experiences, enriches their lives in countless ways, benefits businesses and boosts economies. National Tourism Day occurs during National Travel and Tourism Week, which runs for the entire first week of May. Congress passed a resolution in 1983, a proclamation was signed by Ronald Reagan the following year, and the first week was held in May of that year. At the time, it took place at the end of the month. During the week, travel and travel professionals come together to celebrate the benefits of travel. On National Tourism Day, a number of tourist sites and municipalities promote their locations, and sometimes they host special events. People who love to travel and travel can find an event to attend, do some traveling and touring, or plan a place to travel for the day.
