With the growing popularity of Death Valley National Park, a new destination marketing organization known as Destination: Death Valley Junction has been created. Ironically, Death Valley Junction, just east of the national park, has a population of fewer than four people but features both natural and man-made places to become immersed in the landscape, 19 bookable lodging properties and various tour options.

Stargazing, photography, hiking, exploring and wildflower viewing are among the most popular activities, and The Oasis at Death Valley, the region’s largest resort, and the National Park Service have taken measures to greatly minimize area light pollution. Because of this, Death Valley National Park is designated as a Gold Tier Dark Sky Park, the highest level awarded by the International Dark Sky Association. 

Kevin Hubschmann is a New Jersey-based comedian who has been making people laugh for most of his life. But after not finding as many opportunities to perform live even before the pandemic, he started hosting popup comedy shows in New York City in 2019 under the business name Laugh.Events (pronounced Laugh Dot Events).

 

In the wake of a total global crisis, the Meet Minneapolis team got to work. 

Connecting the Community

Last summer, as communities across the state reeled, the CVB launched the “We Need Us!” campaign as a rally cry and reminder on the importance of supporting the businesses that make Minneapolis so unique.

“It really came from this question of, ‘How can we support our community that’s hurting in so many ways and make locals feel comfortable making those choices?’” says senior vice president of destination branding & strategy Courtney Ries.
