Celebrate Texas Travel & Tourism Week


Texas Governor, Rick Perry, recently declared May 8-16th, 2010 Texas Travel & Tourism Week.

Technically, this is more than a week, but the event is meant to coincide with National Tourism Week, which also runs May 8-16th, 2010.

To celebrate, people are encouraged to act like tourists in their own hometowns. If you are one of those who neglects local sites until out-of-town guests arrive, now is your chance to explore your local community.
