50 Years of Love

The logo, “Virginia is for Lovers”, marked its 50th anniversary this years.  In celebration of this iconic logo, the Virginia Tourism Corporation provided $10,000 grants to 38 communities across the Commonwealth to showcase what makes a vacation in Virginia so special, and to show travelers why “Virginia is for Lovers” still rings true 50 years later.  Please take a look at Scott County’s partner activities and events.
