    LOVE is at the heart …

    by Casey | Posted on March 14th, 2011

    Join us in Virginia where LOVE is at the heart of every Virginia vacation.

    Virginia is for Lovers' new ad campaign: LOVEGovernor Bob McDonnell unveiled a new Virginia is for Lovers television commercial today which is slated to run in eight out-of-state media markets starting in March.

    The new tourism commercial, geared toward family travelers, features experiences found across the state from beaches to history to amusement parks and outdoor recreation. It is made possible by Governor McDonnell’s recent increased investment in tourism marketing as an economic development tool and will return Virginia to television in key out-of-state markets for the first time in four years, reaching 15 million consumers.

    “Tourism is an instant revenue generator for Virginia and is one of the smartest investments we can make as a Commonwealth,” said Governor McDonnell.

    Tourism generates $17.7 billion in revenue, supports more than 204,000 jobs and provides $1.24 billion in state and local taxes.

    To see the new commercial go to www.Virginia.org/LOVEtv.
