Goochland County is excited to announce the launch of the new tourism website that encourages visitors to Explore Goochland.
Since the adoption of the Tourism Strategic Plan in January, Economic Development and other County staff have worked to develop the website along with multiple social media channels. The website includes an events calendar, day trip itineraries, as well as a categorized business directory.
“I am excited to see the adoption of the Tourism Strategic Plan by the Goochland Board of Supervisors and the launch of our new tourism website”, stated Sara Worley, Economic Development Director. “Tourism has the potential to be an important driver in the Goochland economy. With the adoption and implementation of the plan and the launch of the website, we hope to strengthen the local economy by promoting our local attractions and businesses.” Virginia’s tourism industry generated $25.2 billion in visitor spending across all Virginia communities in 2021, which includes $1.8 million in Goochland County.
Over the years, Goochland has become known for numerous attractions such as craft beverage makers, local shops, and outdoor recreational opportunities. The County has also received national recognition for hosting multiple events, television shows, and movies at various local venues. These existing amenities coupled with the natural beauty of the County, offer a unique experience for visitors to spend their time and money in Goochland County.
