Queen Anne’s County Celebrates National Travel & Tourism Week 2021
From May 2nd-May 8th we are celebrating the 38th annual National Travel and Tourism Week (NTTW), recognizing the Power of Travel and the critical role our industry will play in bringing back our vibrant communities, restoring the economy, rebuilding our workforce and reconnecting America.
Prior to the pandemic, the travel industry was a powerful economic engine, supporting jobs and driving local economies across America. The industry had experienced 107 straight months of growth, generated $2.6 trillion in economic output, supported 17 million American jobs and delivered a $51 billion trade surplus to the United States. Unfortunately, that strong growth trend plummeted last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
However, Queen Anne’s County—and the travel industry—is resilient.
National Travel and Tourism Week 2021 is an opportunity to turn the page to a new chapter in our industry’s story and celebrate its collective power by spotlighting the innumerable ways travel will drive recovery.
Follow us throughout the week as we highlight and celebrate our small businesses, attractions, restaurants, and historic sites that serve as economic drivers supporting the Maryland economy. We are thankful for our local tourism partners that provide visitors and residents alike with experiences that can only be found in Queen Anne’s County!
We are positive the #PowerOfTravel will help drive us forward to a more prosperous future!
