The Spirit Of Travel Cannot Be Broken….We Will Be Here Waiting For You!


National Travel and Tourism Week is an annual tradition for the U.S. travel and tourism community. May 3rd- May 9th marks the 37th annual event, celebrating  the value travel holds for our economy, businesses and personal wellbeing. This year’s event will specifically honor the Spirit of Travel in recognition of the Travel Industry’s strength and resiliency. We are reminded of the importance of the industry and its critical role in rebuilding our communities and our country. Now more than ever, the travel and tourism community must come together to support each other and remind our country that even through the most difficult times, the Spirit of Travel cannot be broken. Although we cannot gather, we can use social media to connect us, unify us and support each other from afar, rallying around the Travel and Tourism Industry.


When the time is right, Travel and Tourism will be integral to our nation’s recovery. It will not only be a key driver for the economy and jobs, but also for our country’s morale. The Spirit of Travel is the undercurrent of American culture that makes visitors feel at home, brings joy, and provides lasting memories. Now is the time for the Travel and Tourism Industry to be protected and supported. Communities benefit from a travel driven economy, which permeates through small businesses and attractions that welcome residents and visitors alike, with a smile and hospitality. The Spirit of Travel is not only found in far off places. When residents embrace tourism by supporting local businesses and helping neighbors, they are  also playing a key role in rebuilding their community and the nation. When the time is right, travel will be a necessary and prominent component of our return to everyday life that will heal our country’s economy and its morale.


Travel and Tourism has a critical role in the prosperity of Luray-Page County, Virginia and the nation. A robust travel industry has provided significant economic benefits to our local community and the nation by generating economic output spent directly by travelers. Travel has been the foundation of a healthy workforce, serving as one of the largest private-sector employers in the U.S. Spending by travelers has aided state and local government alike, generating tax revenue to

support essential services and programs. Travel and tourism-dependent businesses, the vast majority which are small businesses, depend on our community’s support through and after this crisis. They truly encapsulate the spirit of our community and our nation. Even while Luray-Page County cannot welcome visitors in person, the Spirit of Travel remains the enduring culture of the travel industry and will be a necessary and prominent component of our return to everyday life and must be supported and protected. It is important that the critical role this industry plays in our economy is recognized as our community and nation move forward.


Virginia’s Luray-Page County will always be a place for love and connection. For

now we are sharing that love from a distance. While we all do our part staying safe, by staying at home, we here in Luray-Page County will be waiting for you. Our
