National Travel and Tourism Week May 2-8

National Travel and Tourism Week is an annual time to celebrate the #PowerofTravel, but this year more than ever, Explore Minnesota is grateful for the people and businesses in Minnesota who have persevered, innovated and continue to inspire us as we focus on recovery and the 2021 summer travel season.

Thank you to the 275,000 people who power the $16.6 billion Minnesota travel and tourism industry, for finding ways to serve visitors and help Minnesotans enjoy the beauty of the state. You have shown us the true #PowerofTravel.
