We live in a time when even the unlikeliest of subjects can receive a day commemorating their importance. In May alone we have Scurvy Awareness Day, Hug Your Cat Day* and National Lost Sock Memorial Day in addition to the traditional Cinco de Mayo. Here’s our take on the subject: If a lost sock can bag its own offbeat holiday, why can’t something as important to Americans as travel and tourism have an entire week to itself?

With the advent of National Travel & Tourism Week, now it does!

Spread over seven days in May, we’re celebrating the occasion at the Villas at Regal Palms, a spacious townhouse timeshare property in Davenport, Fla., near to all the attractions in Orlando.

The theme of this year’s National Travel & Tourism Week is Travel Matters, whereby each of the seven days from May 5-11 is assigned a reason why Travel Matters.

Click on the icons and learn why getting off your sofa and going places is so vital to our economy, employment, health and families among other important reasons.

Sound good? Book a stay at the Villas at Regal Palms during National Travel & Tourism Week – or whenever you can get away!

*A close relative to National Hairball Awareness Day, which falls on April 29.
