About National Travel and Tourism Week 2021: The theme of National Travel and Tourism Week this year, which the U.S. Travel Association organizes, is the Power of Travel. The focus will be on the industry’s role in bringing back our vibrant communities, restoring the U.S. economy, rebuilding our workforce, and reconnecting America. (Source: www.ustravel.org) While keeping that sentiment in mind, remember the role of tourism when it comes to our community’s economy. Tourism provides jobs, lowers personal taxes, improves our local economy, and provides a positive community image, which is critical for economic development.
