At a time when travel and tourism have come to a near complete halt, the Alleghany Highlands Chamber of Commerce and Tourism is working to let potential visitors know that when it is safe to travel again, the Alleghany Highlands will be ready to welcome them to our region.
As a result of those efforts comes a new tourism video with a sincere message letting the region’s potential visitors that know that Highlands residents are facing this adversity together and that brighter days are ahead.
The video is composed of footage from three prior tourism videos the chamber has produced. It shines a light on our downtowns, local businesses, outdoor recreation opportunities and the resilience shown by the people of the Alleghany Highlands.
The chamber has named the video “Alleghany Highlands Strong,” in honor of the efforts of the region’s communities during this difficult time.
“We hope this video will show potential visitors that the Alleghany Highlands is going through this unfortunate time together and that we will be ready to welcome them to our region when it’s safe to travel again,” said Executive Director Teresa Hammond.
You can find the video on the Chamber’s YouTube Channel @Alleghany HighlandsVa, on Facebook @AlleghanyHighlandsVA and on Instagram @visitalleghanyhighlandsva.
“We hope this video serves as a tool to promote future tourism to the Alleghany Highlands and to also highlight how resilient the business community is in our region,” said Josh Taylor of the chamber. The chamber encourages you to share the video so that more people can view it.
