Halifax County's Faces of Tourism features a local couple who enjoy travelling and understand the economic impact of travel.
Rebecca & Greg Donner | Travelers
In our semi-retirement, my husband and I like to travel to other places in Virginia and take in shows, have a nice lunch or dinner out, and visit some of the local sites, some vineyards, quaint shops, and various attractions. While we visit, we obviously spend money in those localities: restaurants, lodging, gift shops, gas stations, grocery stores, and other places. But I hope everyone here in Halifax County realizes that WE in our community have things that people come here for too – The Prizery certainly, VIR, South Boston Speedway, several vineyards, Springfield distillery, the state park, and more. I hope people help to promote our own treasures. We enjoy spreading the word and helping to promote our area, and I hope others will too. It’s a simple thing to do.
