Tourism: Virginia is open for business

Virginia’s vibrant tourism industry is one of the most important economic development sectors in the Commonwealth. In this time of economic uncertainty, we must restore consumer confidence and remind visitors that Virginia is open for business. By increasing our focus on tourism, we can raise the profile and stature of the tourism industry as an economic development engine that will in turn increase visitors and development. As Governor, Mark Earley will seek innovative ways to expand tourism.
