Happy U.S. Travel Rally Day everyone! How do you plan to spread the message that Travel Matters today?
Here's how some cities across the nation are doing it:
• Residents from across the city of New Orleans are taking their support of travel and tourism to the streets! Colorful floats, marching bands, and parade participants brandishing "I am the face of travel" signs are making for an exciting Rally Day in the city.
• Industry employees are gathering in Station Square for Rally Day in Pittsburgh, many of whom are holding their Support Travel signs. The Visit Pittsburgh bus is also on hand!
• Louisville is kicking off National Tourism Week at the Louisville Visitor's Center. President and CEO of the Louisville CVB Jim Wood and Mayor Jerry Abramson will be speaking, and participants have the chance to win special offers, discounts and prizes.
• The streets of Washington, DC will be filled with red on Rally Day. Supporters were asked wear their uniform or to wear red as they gathered to hear U.S. Travel Association President Roger Dow and President and CEO of Destination DC Bill Hanbury speak.
These are just a few of the many events going on around the country today to celebrate. You can follow the action all day by searching for #rallyday on Twitter!
