National Park Service Sesquicentennial Commemoration

Reconstruction

The US Park Service wants to lay the groundwork to establish the first park site commemorating Reconstruction. The initial step is an ambitious year-long study of the period—expanded to include the years 1861 through 1898—that will wrap up this spring.

Quotes

"Let us be lovers we'll marry our fortunes together"
"I've got some real estate here in my bag" . . .
And we walked off to look for America . . .
I've gone to look for America . . .
So I looked at the scenery, she read her magazine
And the moon rose over an open field
"Kathy, I'm lost," I said, though I knew she was sleeping
I'm empty and aching and I don't know why
Counting the cars on the New Jersey Turnpike
They've all gone to look for America
All gone to look for America
All gone to look for America . . ."
- Simon and Garfunkel

National Travel and Tourism Week

The first full week of May is annually recognized as National Travel and Tourism Week, a tradition first celebrated in 1984, established by a Congressional joint resolution passed in 1983.

National Travel and Tourism Week 2014

Theme:
  • Travel Effect—This theme aligns with the current industry-wide campaign to prove the benefits of travel.
  • Research studies on travel's positive effect on relationships, health, education, meetings and more, provide opportunities to tailor messaging about the impact of travel. Access current economic impact data, including a state-by-state interactive map, to spotlight the Travel Effect in your area.
  • In 2014, Travel Effect will broaden its focus to examine America’s “Day Off Deficit” and explore what it could mean to individuals, businesses and the economy if U.S. workers were motivated to use more of the time off they've earned and deserve. Stay tuned for new research in the coming weeks.
