First things first. Go to your state / local Small Business Development Agency. In your case, it’s https://www.lsbdc.org/Default.aspx
Next, you really really REALLY need to find a way to work at or do an internship at a travel agency just to get an idea of what they do and if it’s something you really want.
After that, you need to do a business plan. Don’t pay for one, do it yourself. The research required to do one will let you know what the industry is about and if you really want to commit to it.
Also, try the Small Business Administration
They will give you tons of information on how to start and fund a small business.
