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.


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.

Thanks to all the towns who nominated themselves to showcase that love is at the heart of every Virginia vacation.
