The fifth annual Nacogdoches’ Travel and Tourism Week is going on May 3-11, 2014 this year in conjunction with National and Texas Travel and Tourism Week. Nacogodoches, as well as communities across Texas and the nation, will take this opportunity to champion the benefits of travel and tourism.
To show unity for travel and tourism, we ask the Nacogdoches community to wear red on Tuesday, May 6, 2014. Wearing red is a hospitality industry practice that dates back many years and is a very easy activity to show support for National Travel and Tourism Week. We ask that businesses or organizations who participate in Wear Red Day to please notify us at (936)564-7351 so we may stop by and take a photo to share on our Instagram and Facebook accounts.
The Nacogdoches Convention and Visitors Bureau will also be hosting an Alive After Five at the Visitor Center, 200 E. Main, on Thursday, May 8th 5:30 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. Come celebrate National Travel & Tourism Week with us and learn about the economic impact of tourism in Nacogdoches. Food and beverages provided as well as some really neat door prizes.
Historic Downtown Nacogdoches will be abuzz this year during National Travel and Tourism Week with 2nd Story Tours featuring four downtown properties on May 3rd and the Living History of Oak Grove Cemetery tours on May 3rd and 4th.
