HARRISONBURG, Va. -- A new program called 'Mountains 2 Main Streets' just launched to promote tourism in the Valley.
The program gives visitors passports on which they can get stamps at various locations in the area including Harrisonburg, Luray, Waynesboro, Massanutten Resort, and the Shenandoah National Park.
After getting those stamps, visitors get a chance to win a vacation package to revisit the Shenandoah Valley.
"It's such a wonderful resource for us to have the Shenandoah National Park right in our backyard," said Brenda Black, Harrisonburg Tourism Manager. "I think this is a win-win for the surrounding communities, the park, and the resort. It just brings us all together, allows us to cross-promote each other and gives our visitors more opportunity to explore."
You can get a passport at the visitor centers in Harrisonburg, Waynesboro, Luray, Massanutten or at the Shenandoah National Park.
Black says they started the program from Virginia Tourism Corporation grants.
