WanderLove is our in-state campaign focusing on low-risk travel experiences within Virginia through the lens of easy, short road trips. This campaign was originally launched in response to travel safety concerns and restrictions brought on by COVID-19 in an effort to open our audiences up to the idea of traveling again.
While safe and responsible travel will always be a part of WanderLove, it will now be used as a general guideline rather than the core focus of the content. In 2022 and beyond, we will evolve the message into a theme of travel inspiration and trip building by tapping into our audience’s growing desire to travel and willingness to plan new trips.
We invite you to join the WanderLove campaign by positioning your community as a road trip destination, encouraging travelers to embrace their WanderLove and explore Virginia.
