McDonnell Talks Tourism

Anita Kumar

Republican Bob McDonnell rolled out a series of proposals today designed to boost Virginia's tourism, hospitality and film industries.

He made the announcement from Luray Caverns on what is dubbed Discovery Day, the annual celebration of its discovery in 1868.

The proposals include doubling the funding for the Virginia Tourism Corporation, convening a tourism summit, promoting Virginia wine and increasing money for the governor's motion picture fund by $2 million.

"There is no better state to visit, no better place to film,'' McDonnell said. "You seemingly can't throw a rock here without hitting a beautiful vacation spot, a former president's home, or a Civil War battlefield,'' McDonnell said.
