Mill City Times: Celebrating Minneapolis and the ‘Spirit of Travel’ During National Travel and Tourism Week
By Kim Eslinger
Even as Minnesotans do their part and stay home during the pandemic, the “Spirit of Travel” is alive and well. This week marks National Travel and Tourism Week (NTTW) and Meet Minneapolis, Convention and Visitors Association, will spend the next six days encouraging enthusiasts to take part in the virtual activities. Kicking off yesterday with the “Minneapolis at Home Starter Kit” and the first Instagram story “question of the day,” the week will feature a virtual road trip, trivia, a twist on #TakeoutTuesday, ways to enjoy a fun-filled Minneapolis “night in” and more. It’s part of a larger effort to help the greater community support local businesses and attractions through the organization’s Experience Minneapolis From Home while people are unable to travel at this time.
