National Travel Day
National Travel Day is also known as National Tourism Day that is observed on May 7, 2020. This day is always celebrated during the National and Tourism Week that occurs every first week of May in the United States of America. The former US President Ronald Reagan is considered the father of this day because the day was first celebrated in May 1983 when the then President signed a proclamation. That forced all the citizens to observe the week.
In 2020, the National Travel & Tourism Day was celebrated on Thursday, May 7 while in 2021, Friday will be the relevant day. The specific day was introduced to let people realize the significance of tourism in their lives. Whether you go for a business tour or plan a family trip, travelling brings lots of good things. And it can make you a happy, self-sufficient, and confident person by bringing numerous experiences in your life. Not only for personal grooming, but travelling also plays a contributory role in generating sufficient revenue, supporting the economy, and adding up to the GDP of your country. Therefore, the prudent governments and leadership tackle tourism and travelling as a full-fledged industry, and to enhance its significance, a specific day and a whole week have been introduced.
Along with generating sufficient revenue, travelling bridges the language gaps. People who are fond of visiting foreign countries are encouraged to learn new phrases, words, and regional dialects of these countries. And it also ends the cultural gaps to make you familiar with new environments, people, and ways of life.
