Sunday, May 6 kicks-off National Travel and Tourism Week, and this year's theme is "Travel Then, Travel Now." To celebrate, members of the industry will be posting nostalgic photos and tourism ads on social media. You can get involved and show all your "now and then" photos and ads, too, by using #NTTW18 and #NewMexicoTrue. Encourage friends and family to participate in effort to share the Land of Enchantment's beauty and growth.
Thank you to all who shared photos with the Tourism Department. The department will share those photos on social media to showcase how travel and tourism has changed in your community and across the state as a whole, as well as incorporate them into the department's presentation at the 2018 Governor's Conference on Tourism in Mescalero.
National Travel and Tourism Week brings industry professionals together to highlight the value of travel and consider the broad impact it holds for communities across the country. Over many decades the tourism industry in New Mexico has grown and industry partners have worked hard and strategically to market and sell this great state as a fun, exciting and adventuresome vacation spot.
