    Do you recognize one of the oldest tourist destinations in the US? This beauty has been included on several "Seven Natural Wonders of the World" lists, was surveyed by George Washington in 1750 and was once owned by Thomas Jefferson as a personal retreat. While you're visiting don't forget to swing by the legendary Foamhenge, explore the Natural Bridge Caverns and get your photo taken with a baby tiger at the Natural Bridge Zoo.

    LOVE Sign - Virginia is for Lovers

    LOVE Sign - Virginia is for Lovers

    The Virginia Tourism Corporation is out to prove that love is at the heart of every Virginia vacation – in a big way!

    21 Virginia towns nominated themselves for the VTC Bring Love To Your Town event. Fans of the Virginia is for Lovers Facebook page will decide which town will get the LOVE artwork – a 16 feet wide eight feet tall installation to promote family vacations in Virginia.

    Vote for your favorite but hurry – the vote closes at 5 pm on August 18. VTC will install the artwork on August 31 in the winning locality where it will be on display through September.

    UPDATE:

    Thank you to all who voted in the Bring Love to Your Town event.  We appreciate your LOVE of Virginia’s travel destinations.  Out of the 21 towns who nominated themselves, Abingdon received the most votes and will display the LOVE artwork in September at the Barter Green.
