Did you know about these upcoming events? You do now!

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.

As I pulled up the website for the Virginia International Raceway this afternoon, I saw there on the home page information about the VIR Club Member Driving Days with a link to find out how one can join VIR and enjoy personal driving days for themselves at the world renowned road course here in Halifax County, Virginia.  VIR is well known for its high end road course racing, karting, and race events that they play host to throughout the year, but did you know that as an individual that you can become a member of this prestigious club resort?

Welcome to South Boston and Halifax County, Virginia! We're so glad you're here!

Welcome to our community, and welcome to the South Boston and Halifax County Tourism Blog.  Feel free to make yourself at home.

From behind the desk of the South Boston-Halifax Visitor Center, a gift shop full of local history books, local wines, and local arts and jewelry is to my left, brochures for restaurants, lodging, attractions and events are to my right, and iconic agriculture, racing, and state park memorabilia are all around.  On the other side of the glass front double doors, cars of locals and visitors cross the intersection of Highway 58 and Route 360.  It is from this point of view that I witness a kaleidoscope of who and what makes up South Boston and Halifax County in this region we call Southside Virginia: the residents, visitors, passersby, the stories,  history, families, and, of course, the friendships.
