National Travel and Tourism Week

May 7 - May 13 2023

National Travel and Tourism Week (NTTW) is an annual tradition to celebrate the U.S. travel community and tourism’s essential role in stimulating economic growth, cultivating vibrant communities, creating quality job opportunities, inspiring new businesses and elevating the quality of life for Americans every day.

Tourism is essential to our region and plays an integral role in Norfolk’s economy. As the third largest economic driver for our city, the travel and tourism industry mobilized a $136.8 million impact in fiscal year 2022. With over 7,000 jobs in the tourism and hospitality sector, our industry attracts a multitude of talents and provides significant economic benefits to both local businesses and Norfolk residents.

How can you celebrate NTTW? Start by getting out and exploring some of the incredible attractions, activities, restaurants, shopping and cultural experiences that Norfolk has to offer! While you’re at it, say hello to one of the friendly professionals working in Norfolk’s hospitality industry. Check out our 2023 Champions of Hospitality, and be sure to congratulate them for making Norfolk such a welcoming place to experience.
