About

RTS Logo
Recreation, Tourism, and Sport Specialty Group

Our mission is to provide a forum 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 Association of American 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 usually organise a social event at the same time as our business meeting during the Annual Meeting of the Association of American Geographers.
