National Travel And Tourism Week Being Marked Virtually

LINCOLN, Neb – This is National Travel and Tourism Week, the annual celebration of the contributions and accomplishments of the U-S travel industry.

Nebraska Tourism Commission executive director John Ricks says this year’s observance is unusual because of the limits placed on travel and tourism for the past 2 months by the coronavirus.

In fact, this year’s theme “The Spirit of Travel” is spotlighting resilience and hope in the face of the pandemic.

Ricks says with face-to-face events out because of the pandemic, Nebraska Tourism is turning to Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to post future travel ideas and activities.

They’ve also created a video of tourism industry leaders throughout the state offering encouraging messages about the future of travel and relaying how much they miss travelers in their communities.
