2022 National Travel & Tourism Week, May 1-7


PHOENIX (April 28, 2022) — To celebrate 2022 National Travel and Tourism Week (NTTW), the Arizona Office of Tourism is inviting travelers to explore Arizona through the images, itineraries and experiences of five vacation ambassadors who are visiting different regions of the state.

Follow along on Instagram @visit_arizona during NTTW May 1-7 for collaborative posts from our travel influencers featuring the activities people come to Arizona for including rest & relaxation, outdoor adventures, amazing cuisine, luxury experiences and family fun. New adventures will be shared each day from different parts of the state. Join in on the fun by sharing your own Arizona adventures using the hashtag #LetsSeeAZ.

“Road trips, our amazing parks and special only-in-Arizona experiences continue to be a strong driver for so many visitors to our state,” said Debbie Johnson, director of the Arizona Office of Tourism. “So we invited travel ambassadors to share our attractions and businesses, long-time favorites and places locals can't get enough of through their own perspectives.”
