Virginia tourism officials are encouraging old-school road trips as part of a new travel campaign.
The Virginia Tourism Corporation is launching it's "Go Old School" campaign, trumpeting what it calls "the small town pleasures and quirky roadside wonders of Virginia."
The project, launched at Doumar's Barbecue and Cones in Norfolk, claims to have invented the ice cream cone. The campaign features Virginia's musical legacy and roadside wonders -- including giant roller-skates and supersized frying pans.
The effort also highlights the Commonwealth's wines, brews and spirits, along with old-fashioned diners and classic drive-ins.>
