When: Always on May 7th

National Tourism Day is a day for municipalities and tourism sites around the country to promote their area or region. Municipalities and entertainment venues big and small, use today to let people know about activities and events in their areas. They will often do so in a big way.

A great way to promote your area is to hold activities and events on this day. Ideally, make it a weekend, or a week-long celebration. Along with advertisements, offering discounts and other promotions will work well.

If you are a tourist venue, use this day to really spread the word on what you are all about. As a tourist, use today in search of a new, exciting, and interesting place to go. And, look for deals that may be offered today. Don't just browse and dream. Book your travel plans today!


Origin of National Tourism Day:

Our research did not find the creator, or the origin of this day. Most likely, it was a tourist venue or a municipality seeking to promote themselves. The popularity of this day to these parties is self evident.

This is referred to as a "National" day. However, we did not find any congressional records or presidential proclamations for this day.
