Todd Hansen is a master story-teller who believes that every person has something important to say, and he's on a mission, traveling the country searching for a story. He happens to be the host of BYUtv's reality tv show entitled, "The Story Trek," and his cross country searching led him right here to Halifax County, Virginia.
Whenever travelers make an unplanned stop at the South Boston-Halifax County Visitor Center, operated by the Halifax County tourism Department, they often ask with a smile and a question mark on their face, “What is there to do in…South Boston, Virginia?” Without hesitation, I confidently answer that for a county and town as small as we are, one would be surprised at how much there is to do here!
One way for locals and visitors, alike, to find out what is happening in our community is to view the community calendar at the Halifax County Tourism Department’s website at www.gohalifaxva.com. My goal at work today was to add ten events to our calendar for the remainder of November and upcoming December 2013. Within two hours, I had easily surpassed my goal, adding 13 events to the items already on the calendar. Whether you are a local looking for something fun to do or ways to support your local neighbors, or you are visiting the area and in search of local flavor, you might be interested in the following:
