May 7-13, 2023 marks the 40th anniversary of National Travel and Tourism Week (NTTW). This annual industry tradition celebrates the value travel holds for our economy, businesses, personal well-being, and more.

There’s no denying that Washington’s astounding natural beauty captures the attention of people all over the world. According to the Washington State Department of Commerce, tourism is the state’s fourth-largest industry, generating roughly $21 billion annually and employing more than 180,000 workers.

With towering evergreen trees, jagged mountain ranges, massive snow-capped volcanoes, and turquoise alpine lakes, those of us who are fortunate to call this state home know just how special it is. In fact, two-thirds of travelers are state residents who enjoy Washington’s year-round recreation and sports opportunities!

Whether you’re visiting from a neighboring town, another state, or another country, it’s important to recognize that special places, such as the Mountains to Sound Greenway National Heritage Area (Greenway NHA), require care and respect. You can do your part to conserve this incredible landscape by being a responsible visitor, following these four tips, and checking out the resources at the link below to learn more!
