FREDERICKSBURG, Texas — The Fredericksburg Convention and Visitor Bureau (FCVB) will celebrate National Travel and Tourism Week (May 1-7) with a pair of unique events.
National Travel and Tourism Week is an annual celebration for the U.S. travel community. It is a time when travel and tourism professionals unite to recognize the value that travel holds for the economy, businesses, and personal well-being. This year, the week-long celebration is spotlighting the critical role that travel will play in driving economic growth and building the path forward through the theme Future of Travel.
In Fredericksburg and Gillespie County, the present and future look bright as the area experienced record-setting lodging occupancy and sales tax collections in 2021 and several new hotels and attractions will open in the coming years.
During the celebration week, locals and visitors to Fredericksburg’s Visitor Information Center at 302 E. Austin St. will receive a free bottle of water and a free cookie as the FCVB also highlights its recently launched stewardship campaign – Love FBGTX. The Visitor Information Center will offer these small thank you gifts to locals and visitors during normal business hours: Monday-Saturday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The FCVB will also welcome members of the tourism-industry and local officials for an invitation-only, come and go event on Tuesday, May 3, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Visitor Information Center. The event will include small bites, beverages and live music. Attendees can tour the Visitor Information Center, visit with FCVB staff, pick up a newly released 2021 Annual Report and view the 10-minute “Intro to Fredericksburg” video presentation.
