Wyoming Celebrates Tourism Week

Tourism Week

This week, Wyoming is observing National Travel and Tourism Week with a variety of events across the state.    The first full week of May is annually observed throughout the US as a time to recognize the power of the travel and tourism industry.  Deputy Wyoming Travel Director Alan Dubberly points out communities around the state have planned activities to mark the week.  He says communities like Laramie, Riverton, Torrington, Sheridan and Pinedale will all have events of their own.  Dubberly says the week culminates with members of the Travel and Tourism Staff joining Wyoming Governor Matt Mead in Yellowstone Friday where the Governor will sign a proclamation and the state tourism officials will unveil the summer travel marketing campaign. He says a new piece of it this year is a sticker campaign where visitors can stop into the visitors around the state and pick up a sticker which he describes as run and “kind of retro,” and he says the reaction from the public has been fun and rewarding.  Dubberly says earlier indicators suggest this will be a strong year for travel in Wyoming.  He says one guest ranch owner has even told state officials he is booked-up for June.  Beyond that, Dubberly says advance reservations are reportedly very strong statewide.

  • Don’t lose your vision in the woods - October 21, 2014
    I don’t have good eyes. Had I been born a hundred years ago, there would have been no help for me. Glasses can’t help me, so I’d have blind. I have to wear a special kind of contact lens, which wasn’t available in the days of Davey Crockett and Daniel Boone. But through the miracle […]
  • Hunters must be conservationists first - October 20, 2014
    As hunters, it’s our responsibility to take care of the critters we hunt, as well as those we don’t. We have to obey the game laws. Police ourselves to be sure others respect the wildlife.
