Even though we are still not quite in travel mode for the summer just yet, we are all looking forward to a time soon when we can eventually travel about and enjoy the summer months. With that said, Arkansas will celebrate the “Spirit of Travel” during National Travel and Tourism Week, May 3-9. This year, the week will highlight travel’s ability to provide resilience and hope.

According to a press release, the director of Arkansas Tourism Travis Napper said “There’s no doubt this has been an incredibly challenging time, but National Travel and Tourism Week is an opportunity to remind our visitors and our residents of the incredible spirit and resiliency of the travel industry and our workforce. It’s only a matter of time before we all get moving again, and Arkansas will be more ready than ever to welcome travelers with open arms.”
