National Tourist Appreciation Day

National Tourist Appreciation Day is an annual American holiday dedicated to tourists. We should be grateful to these people, because thanks to such travelers the country’s economy can develop at a faster pace. Tourism today is one of the most promising areas, the profits from which can be directed to the development of culture, medicine, education and so on. The holiday is celebrated on May 6.


The history of National Tourist Appreciation Day is devoid of details. The history of tourism is lost in the depths of centuries. Back then it was better to call such people explorers, because they set out on a journey in search of something new, without even having the slightest idea about it. Usually this role was played by a cartographer and wandering traders.

In today’s world, tourism is a broad category of outdoor activities. You can just go hiking in the nearest large forest or mountains, or you can go on a trip to the most remote countries, enjoying the scenic views of nature and local attractions.

The title of tourist states is usually claimed by countries with unique natural landscapes and distinctive culture or very developed countries with access to the sea: breathtaking views of the metropolis, many technologically advanced buildings, and a few kilometers away – the best hotels on the shore of the warm sea. It is just a tourist paradise.

Tourists enjoy what they do, and the state gets super-profits when the tourist season starts.
