Recreation, Tourism, and Sport Specialty Group

Our mission is to provide a forum for, and to encourage research and teaching of, applied and academic aspects of recreation, tourism and sport geography. We meet once a year at the Annual Meeting of the American Association of Geographers (usually held in April each year). We are a diverse group including geographers from across the United States and very many geographers from around the world. We encourage graduate students to join our group and participate in our special sessions at the Annual Meeting. We organize a couple of social events during the conference and we also hold an open business meeting.
