Atlanta Convention & Visitors Bureau (ACVB), in partnership with Expedia Group Media Solutions, launches a campaign to welcome visitors back to Atlanta following travel restrictions from COVID-19. The campaign creates travel packages aimed at inspiring regional visitors and locals to safely enjoy Atlanta as tourism gradually increases. A survey by MMGY Travel Intelligence shows 67 percent of travelers are likely to take a trip by personal car during the next six months.

“The goal of this campaign is to provide a boost to Atlanta’s hospitality industry over the summer,” said William Pate, president and CEO, ACVB. “Our members have introduced new measures to ensure the safety of employees and visitors while providing a fantastic Atlanta experience.”

Participating hotels are located in Atlanta’s Downtown, Midtown and Buckhead neighborhoods and offer savings that include breakfast and parking, special pool packages and other amenities. Many properties are located within walking distance of attractions included in Atlanta’s CityPASS program, offering discounted entry rates to multiple venues. Upon arrival at the hotel, guests will receive a complimentary Destination Passport containing savings from retailers and restaurants at Lenox Square and Phipps Plaza, two of Atlanta’s most notable shopping centers.

While in the city, visitors can experience tours of Atlanta’s public art, its neighborhoods and green spaces; civil war to civil rights, its history and heritage or various types of cuisine. There are a variety of tours that also highlight sights and scenes of Atlanta as a top movie and film destination. Groups can travel by private car, electric cart, Segway, bicycles, by foot or even virtually.
