National Travel & Tourism Week

National Travel and Tourism Week (NTTW), is the annual celebration of the contributions of the U.S. travel industry. Destination Augusta celebrates the value travel holds for our economy, businesses, personal well-being, and more. We're encouraging you to make plans to visit Augusta. We also welcome local Augustans to be a tourist in your own city! Check out the exciting activities happening during the week in Augusta. 

Destination Augusta is spreading the great news about Augusta year-round. Take a listen to a few of the podcasts that our staff has been featured on to discuss tourism, travel, and all things Augusta!
