NATIONAL TOURISM WEEK, MAY 12-20 

NATIONAL TOURISM WEEK, MAY 12-20   
Each May communities across the nation celebrate National Tourism Week with special events to highlight the importance of tourism to the economy. The main focus of National Tourism Week is to promote a wider understanding of travel and tourism as a major U.S. industry that is vital to the economic stability and growth of the United States and contributes substantially to its cultural and social well being.

Looking at the economic benefit of tourism; more than 20 million people visit New York’s Finger Lakes each year with spending by overnight leisure visitors adding more than $2 billion annually to the regional economy. In Cayuga County alone, tourism is responsible for 960 jobs.

National Tourism Week is the perfect time to focus on the impact of travel and tourism in our area, thank our visitors for their patronage, honor the employees who serve them and show our pride in the tourism industry.

If you have any special activities or events planned to celebrate National Tourism Week, please let the Tourism Office know so that we can help you promote them.
