Welcome Center Visits and National Tourism Week
- North Carolina’s nine Welcome Centers located on Interstate highways just inside the state line promote tourism related businesses to visitors already in the state actively seeking travel information. The JCVB works with all the Welcome Centers to provide them with visitor information and keep them updated on what is happening in Johnston County. We visit the I-95 North and South Centers multiple times a year.
- The first full week of May is recognized as National Travel & Tourism Week. The JCVB celebrates this every year by going to the Welcome Centers at I-95 North and South. Tourism partners are invited to join us and promote their businesses to travelers stopping at the centers.
