Every year, the U.S. Travel Association uses National Travel and Tourism Week to promote the impactful contributions travel markets and organizations make to the economy. Save the date for 2020 NTTW and its theme - Travel Works!


2019 - Travel Matters

Last year, Visit Baton Rouge will celebrated with two events in support of the many ways travel positively impacts our community.

  • Tuesday, May 7 - Travel Rally Day Tailgate outside of the Visit Baton Rouge offices from 11 a.m. - 1 p.m.
  • Friday, May 10 - TRAVEL MATTERS second line downtown at 4 p.m., beginning in Town Square and ending at Live After 5

These events were part of the 36th annual National Travel and Tourism Week (NTTW), which unites communities across the country to celebrate how travel matters to American jobs, economic growth and personal well-being. The theme of this year’s NTTW, “Travel Matters,” highlights the innumerable ways in which travel makes up the fabric of Baton Rouge's culture and economy. Each day of NTTW will celebrate a different facet of travel: the economy, new experiences, jobs, infrastructure, health benefits, hometown pride and how travel strengthens families.
