National Travel & Tourism Week
2022 highlights

In 2022, National Travel and Tourism Week (NTTW) celebrated the "Future of Travel." The Department of Tourism thanks all of our friends across the state for showing their support and lighting their respective attractions and locations in red (the official color of NTTW) to put a spotlight on the week and the importance of tourism to South Dakota.

Below are some NTTW highlights, including Governor Noem's 2022 video, a sampling of the tremendous media coverage, photos of locations across South Dakota lit red, and some photos of the 2022 Spring Hospitality Training sessions.

We're excited about the "Future of Travel" and we wish everyone a great 2022 season!
