Celebrates National Travel & Tourism Week

The Queen Anne’s County kicks off National Travel and Tourism Week (May 3 – 9, 2020). We are excited to celebrate the small businesses, attractions, restaurants, and historic sites that serve as economic drivers and support the economy of Maryland.

The official theme for National Travel and Tourism Week (NTTW 2020) is The Spirit of Travel Cannot Be Broken. So this year, in acknowledgement of NTTW 2020, Queen Anne’s County Office of Tourism celebrates the week with the tagline #QACPROUD. We are thankful to employers and employees that provide visitors and residents with experiences that can only be found in Queen Anne’s County.

Included below is a social media itinerary in SALUTE to the hospitality sector. Follow the #QACPROUD industry party on our official social media platforms.  @VisitQueenAnnes
