National Travel & Tourism Week

This week is about celebrating all that travel encompasses, especially those people working on the front lines of our travel and tourism industry. The Effingham CVB plans to celebrate travel and tourism throughout the week by saluting just a few of Effingham’s “Faces of Travel.” We will be highlighting these faces and attractions on our Facebook page, “Visit Effingham” Monday through Friday. We encourage everyone to share our posts for a chance to win a prize from the corresponding attraction that day. You will have five chances to win some great prizes.

The Effingham Tourism Office is also giving away a grand prize at the end of the week. Residents can also stop by the Effingham Visitor Center (1505 Hampton Dr.) to register to win 2 tickets to a Chicago Cubs game and a $50 VISA gift card.  The tickets are for the September 2nd game at Wrigley Field at 1:20 p.m. agains the Atlanta Braves. Stop by the Visitor Center May 8 – 12th to register to win this great prize package. We will draw for the winner after 1:00 p.m. on Friday, May 12th so be sure to register before noon on Friday. Residents and visitors that come in the Visitor Center during National Travel and Tourism Week will also receive a free Effingham huggie/koozie and free cookies from Cookie Creations (while supplies last). For more information, visit our Facebook: Visit Effingham, or call 217-342-5310.
