It’s Texas Travel and Tourism Week
Texas Gov. Rick Perry has designated the nine-day period between Saturday, May 3 and Sunday, May 11 as Texas Travel and Tourism Week, in conjunction with National Travel and Tourism Week.
As part of the Texas Travel and Tourism Week, Texas Tourism is launching the Travel Matters Sweepstakes with an opportunity to win a grand prize vacation package to all the Schlitterbahn Water Parks located in Texas, specifically in New Braunfels, Galveston and South Padre Island.
“Texas Travel and Tourism Week encourages Texans to explore the many experiences and exciting attractions in their own backyard, while highlighting the important economic impact and benefits of the travel and tourism industry in our communities and our state,” said Texas Tourism director Brad Smyth. “Because the travel industry is an important part of our economy, travel matters to everyone who calls Texas home.”
