Tourism stakeholders have been invited to the rally to represent their attractions, hotels, dining and shopping destinations, and showcase how important tourism is to the area. Visit Sugar Land is also recognizing locals and local tourism partners during National Travel & Tourism Week on their social media channels to introduce their followers to the “Faces of Travel.” Pictured is Drayton Dupree.
