Shenandoah County aims to keep locals, local with Travel and Tourism week deals
HARRISONBURG, Va. (WHSV) - Shenandoah County is working to keep locals, local.
During the 40th annual Travel and Tourism Week, businesses, restaurants and attractions are giving discounts or offering promotions to county residents.
“For us, it’s a huge driver of our economy and many of our businesses both large and small,” Jenna French, Director of Tourism and Economic Development for Shenandoah County said.
Proof of residency is asked to be shown to get the promotions, however, French said it can be as simple as a driver’s license.
“Memorial Day weekend is when things officially kick off and then summer is our busy season, but the Shenandoah Valley is well known for the fall foliage and so we also see a lot of visitors coming out primarily on the weekends throughout the fall as well,” French said.
Bryce Resort also serves as a four-season resort for residents and tourists to enjoy in Shenandoah County.
Throughout the year, Shenandoah County Tourism is offering behind the scenes tours of many local businesses in the county.
In May, the tours include Bryce Resort and the town of New Market. It’s $15 which covers the cost of your lunch.
”We hear people say ‘oh my gosh I’ve lived here my whole life and I never knew that this existed’ or I didn’t realize the background about this business or this facility so it’s a great opportunity to educate yourself but also hopefully have some fun in the meantime,” French said.
